What's become of the 2 ERIE-LACKAWANNA hoppers....haven't seen them I think for several years now ?

When originally acquired, the M&E repainted 1 in basic black with red upper ends and the yellow diamond logo while the other remained in the original black with E-L block lettering.

They were frequently loaned to NJT and the NYSW over the years but they seemed to have disappeared....

Anyone ?

In recent years they have been sandwiched with the comet Is and FL9s on the verando spur along with other maintenance equipment.

I found the hoppers at Lake Junction. They've been tagged pretty good. I can email the images from my camera phone.
