You guys are just being silly now - the caption for that railcar states: "Ex-KCLX 45241-45360, ACF Coalveyor with side extensions for C&D service". implying that former coal service cars are being used in C&D service. But Mr. Ken Patrick had clearly stated in a previous post:

, so I'm afraid your just wrong (or perhaps Mr. Patrick is, nah, that can't be).
These C&D cars from former Coal Gons and Air Slides seem fairly straightforward to model, now the key is to find the base models (for me, HO Scale)
Atlas - Coalveyor Hoppers
Intermountain - Bathtub Gondolas (apparently based on a older Hawker-Siddeley design from the late 1960s, but not entirely sure, but the images sure match)
Walthers - Airslide Hoppers - the April 2011 issue of the on-line Model Rail Hobbyist has an article on converting the Airslides to the NS C&D hopper
