A few years back there was talk of building a lime plant at Port Inland. I never head anything more about it but perhaps that would explain the covered hoppers you are reporting.
You are correct that several years back Inland quarry operated using WC SDL-39's. Last I knew they were using dark green ex-Chicago & Illinois Midland SD units.
All limestone from the quarry leaves by boat, although 15 or more years ago the WC used stone from there to re-ballast the line across the U.P.
