    I don't have any pictures yet, but Providence and Worcester Railroad has a ton of Conrail hoppers. I saw a coal train pull out of Worcester, MA with at least 40 Conrail hoppers on it.

    The thing is, I didn't take a picture of the coal train. If I see it again, I will though.

    But in each case, the second road wasn't yet "fallen" when the shot was taken.

    Even for 1990, the Rock box still looks pretty good. I never noticed that those cars had a small CNW emblem.
