What source are you quoting from? My Climax Radial Roof call cameBen,
My data shows Hutchins radial roof for C&O 7000-7649. The list of 1932
ARA cars published on the STMFC, which was a list assembled by several
people but is credited in my name, simply states "R" for Radial Roof in
the roof column and does not specify which type or manufacturer.
Therefore I don't know where the "Climax" came from. This should clear
More specifically, the C&O diagram for series 7000-7649 states the cars
had Hutchins roofs with a note 11 that states "50 cars to have SRE
Co's. paneled type roof applied. #14 ga." This diagram is originally
dated June 1934 with 7 revisions, the latest being 1-3-60 (hard to
read, but that's what I think it says). I don't know when note 11 was
applied. In addition, there's note 1 that specifies Ajax hand brake
replacing geared type.
