Thanks @chicken45!
Yea, the insides of open cars are sometimes forgotten, but often very photogenic. Not too many topside color photos from the era though... I want to do some with raw steel plate showing.

"I read somewhere that an ocassional load or two of eastern coal made it to L.A. harbor for steam ship fuel and such"

Maybe that explains the Pennsy hopper I caught in Pasco yard in the very early 70s.  Going to one of the ports on Puget Sound?  I doubt that too many coal-burning ships were calling at Portland by then.
