Anyone know the number of the ATLAS/NYC cars? According to
the Morning Sun NYC book the NYC only had one car built by ACF.
I have a '67 Equipment Register and it shows other shorter "center
flows" which wouldn't necessarily mean it's the same as the early
cylinderical style.

BTW I went through all my CR and predecessor slides that I have
catalog'd (250+) and only found PRR cylindrical hoppers; no NYC,
PC or CR. This of course isn't a scientific survey, but I'm sure I'd
have taken picture of anything I'd seen.....
