not too long ago i saw a csx hopper with c&o reporting marks. while csx isn't a fallen flag, i mention this because of the rarity. csx used the component railroad's reporting marks for about a year or so in 1986-1987 until their csxt mark was approved. most cars were restenciled with the csxt mark and i was surprised that a fully painted csx car was still running around with the original mark.

IIRC, going down to Florida on the Car Train, I saw a few Southern cars - covered hoppers IIRC.

Up here on Long Island they use old Pennsylvania gondolas in the work trains. Several I saw sported keystones.
