IF MY MEMORY SERVES ME RIGHT, I RECALL SEEING A PHOTO OF A DUNDEE CEMENT LETTERED PS2 STYLE COVERED HOPPER. I CANT RECALL IF IT WAS JUST A MODEL OR WAS THERE REALLY A PROTOTYPE CAR. IF SO COULD SOMEONE SHARE A PHOTO? THANKS IN ADVANCE.

Yes, there is a prototype for the Dundee Cement car. As Fritz Milhaupt pointed out they are out there.

Hasn't the Dundee cement production facility been
dormant for almost 20 years?

Production ended around 2009 but it may be used as a distribution center for it's current occupant, Buzzi Unicem, and receive inbound cement.

HI Henry, I haven't been able to find a picture of the UTLX Dundee Cement cars. Would you happen to have a picture you can post?

The attached photo (in slide format) is for sale on ebay at the moment, available here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/373036818140. Interesting that it's not a UTLX car, but CRDX, as was the Northern Michigan Railroad Club's 2018 car.
