These 70 cars (71900-71969) were built at Princeton, and are a modification of the Virginian H14 design (N&W class H34) They were used for "Coal Char" loading until 1969, when 64 of them had the roofs removed to equip them for wood chip service and the remaining 6 were retired in the early 1980's.

Does anyone have the actual diagrams or dimensions of this car?  What was their intended service?

Thanks in advance,
