Southern RR 72382:  An old Athearn hopper can have a good life with a little weathering.  I replaced the couplers with Kadees and added a homemade coal load.  Plenty of soot and dust on the sides gives this hopper a well used look.  Foriegn road hoppers were rare on the East End, but there were a few.  I'm using this car to represent such special shipments of coal through the East End.
