Does anyone know if any of the earlier CBC's have the GA drawings and/or photos for B&Os (including SV&E) 9,000 side-dump 55-ton hopper cars and/or their side-swing door hardward details? They were built in 1915-1917 by multiple builders.
No drawings, but in addition to the CBC ad, Keith Retterer has a Pressed Steel builder's photo of an SV&E car. On a related note, the 70-ton STMX 20001-20300 series that C&O picked up in 1923 are a stretched derivative of the N-13 design.
