I am forwarding the question of a member of the Southeastern Model
Railroaders Forum. I responded that the N&W did not lease any H2a
hoppers to the B&O, but possibly did lease H3
hoppers. Unfortunately, I don't have any further information on the
H3 lease. Dow mentions preliminary discussion on a lease of H3
hoppers in the early 1940s, but states that it fell through.

I am sure someone on this list has a more complete answer to Derek's
question than I gave him. You can answer directly to him, or to this
list and I will forward the information to him. Please do post the
answer to this list, though, as I am just as curious as Derek is now. Thanks.
