Note that any resemblance to the GLa, for example, are co-incidental, because these were the only USRA hopper cars the PRR owned. In other words, they were not modified GL or GLa cars. They went straight to the PRR-owned Long Island Railroad, but during October 1929 the cars became PRR road numbers 220000 through 220299.
