'Ancient' CPR

Among a sea of cylindrical hoppers, a small minority still wear CP's script sheme (pre-multimark, 1968 in this case). I've seen boxcars and gondolas in this paint sheme before, but this is my first hopper.
It might, but CP is in the process of lowering them down to the standard height as a safety precaution - they don't want us scrambling up there to crank on a brake seeing as we don't have a fall arrest system.
