Class A 1203 is listed as retired in Prince's book as of 2-1959.

Hopper 60773 is an H-9, rebult from and HL; I believe this number series 607xx is toward the end of the rebuilding of the HLs, somewhere in 1956-7.

The triangle in the left panel of hopper 65183 was a paint code that I believe was not applied until about 1957.

I could not read any of the re-weigh dates on the hopper cars.

So my "guess" is between 1957 and 59.  Perhaps someone else can add more info.

Several years ago I purchased a batch of photographs and would like some assistance in dating this image from Williamson.
