LV17531
 
An old composite.
 
That's it for my hopper pix. Sorry some are reduced a lot, but if anyone has a desire, I can send them the full pic.
 
I have some class X and a couple of class R pix. Shall I post them or would that be overkill?
 
It'd be great if someone could send me details on these cars and I'll modify the posts to include them -, with credit of course.

G.F and Ray,
 
Thanks for the photos.  There were quite a few I had not seen before.  Ray, what details were you looking for on the cars?  I may be able to help you with some of them.

Here's a car that hasn't ben covered. I found the origin of the sand cars to be pretty intriguing. The 90 cement cars in this 50000-500089 series, which were the LV's first covered hoppers, were built at Packerton in 1930 from hoppers.  The series isnít listing in my 46 Register.  Based on the roof,  Iím positive some of these cars were rebuilt with new trucks and brakes into the sand cars in 1950.  I found it interesting that the sand cars had a new date of 1950.  I thought I read somewhere were railroads for tax purposes would totally rebuild cars and keep the original built date.  
 
The photo was taken in Baltimore in 1932.

Chuck,
 
Just general details like when built, by whom, etc. So I can annotate the posts with the pictures.
