These hoppers are at the Emporia dog food plant; all reporting marks, dates, etc have been painted over. BNSF switches this plant. A critter had pulled one of these cars up to the open door on the extreme right of the pic, possibly to load waste material? With no reporting marks or car numbers I doubt these cars ever leave the facility; notice the heavy rust on the last car on the left.
I included them for any modelers on the forum that might want to include something like this on their layout.

No doubt the 1015 needs some paint, but that size engine would be perfect on a tourist railroad.
