I see that Stewart/Bowser is producing C&I fishbelly hopper cars in HO.  I have looked for a prototytpe picture of this car and have not found any.  Did the C&I have fishbelly cars like the following:

Greetings,
 
There was at least one C&I hopper until mid-1979 or 1980. I have a photo of one (well, partial anyway) taken on the old N&W main line near South Point, Ohio. Here's a photo of the one I saw, but it appears to have a straight underframe. Sorry it wasn't a better shot but I grabbed what I could!
