    Biggest commodity was cement on the CNJ and L&HR. thats where the majority of the Northeastern hoppers gets around. and especially PRR "newer" hoppers, those were used for everything.. glass sand, silica sand (found in Lewistown, PA) and clay products. Old cars tend to leak cement dust all over, and gets too rock solid after getting pelted with rain..

    CNJ inherited about half of the Lehigh & New England fleet of covered hoppers. By the seventies these were the mainstay of sand service in southern New Jersey. Probably still used for cement too? Most carried their LNE reporting marks to the end of their days in the early Conrail era.
