Re: True Line new "Fowler" pictures
This is hardly "much" but I do have CP 180528 with a load of rubber from Bloomington IN to Michigan City IN on 10/20/1948. It is listed as 36' steel underframe 8' IH with a 5' door. I don't know its final destination, but most of the cars for Michigan City were either to Haskell & Barker, the Michigan Central or the South Shore. In the same set of conductor's logs there are 6 other Canadian cars: (2) CP 'miniboxs', (1) CN 40' steel underframe 9' IH with a 6' door [howe truss?], (2) CN 40' Postwar AAR and (1) CN '37 AAR (out of a total 750 cars logged).

The gaps in the boards look worse (proportionally) on small cars
Did these cars come to the US much? For their huge numbers I
can't recall any photos of them south of the border in the 1940's
Passing on a message I rec'd tonight....
