Any VGN Coal Hoppers still existent?

Post by PRRGuy » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:14 pm

On the Rail Preservation News group a photo of a short GTW Steam freight was posted with the thought of being able to recreate it now with preserved equipment, except for a VGN 55 ton hopper in consist...which got me looking with no luck so far. Anyone know of any Virginian Coal hoppers in existence? Or possibly one of the famous "Battleship" Gondolas?
