What were the numbers of the Sealy hopper cars for Southern, AGS, and CNO&TP ?

Which versions? There were those built new and those which were rebuilt fromm steel cars in the 20s. There were marginal differences in dimensions between the different types. bascially cars in the 200000s were CNOTP, AGS cars were in the 300000s and southenr cars were in series below the CNOTP cars. If you can tie down a specific tye I can look up the numbers for you.
I'd suggest investing in an ORER for the period you are interested in to sort out the numbers - you can buy CD versions from Westerfield.
BTW despite what the model manufacturers may say they were SELEY hoppers named after their N&W designer.
