Re: Tight clearances on B&O, was, Re: B&O Circle T stencil

The circle T stencil meant that such boxcars could go anywhere on B&O,
> the Parkersburg Sub was a limiting factor to be addressed.


WHAT??? I have more than a dozen saved emails from Jim Mischke, Dave Sieber,
Pat Wider, Ken Braden, others, including direct quotations from B&O company
memos, going back 8 years, saying

circle T - fit for Timesaver LCL service (clean, mechanically sound)

By the same token, a car stenciled this way was also able to travel over the
Parkersburg Sub. But that was not the "meaning" of the stencil according to
all of those other posts.
