PC: Re: hopper car usage

----- Original Message -----
From: Greg Johnson
1) Were 55 ton hoppers still used much during this period?
2) If they were still used, what would be an estimate of the ratio of 55 ton
to 70 ton to 100 ton?

Here is a break down of hoppers cars owned by the PC as of January 1969:

50ton  59

(must have been really slow at relettering hoppers)
