Well these pictures are tiny but near's I can tell that's a USRA twin or a clone thereof... probably the most common twin open hopper design.

If nobody else gets to it first, this is something I'm going to draw up, as the Pere Marquette had such cars, too.

Re the pictures...these are horribly tiny, really, almost uselessly so. I hope you didn't pay for them this small? I'd be livid...
