Weston... AC&Y 1300-1329, total 30 cars, 41'-6"IL, 1380 cuf, 50-ton, In-service 1942 to 1968?, built by Bethlehem Steel at Johnstown, PA in 1942, all steel, 11 panel (3'-6"IH), fixed end, flat bottom, painted black with ACY marks, later with roadname and circle herald, model with Mantua gon (modified). There are only three known photos, none of which show the B-end; however, 100 fishbelly hoppers built under the same Wartime order had Equipco brake gear. REL
