Subject: [STMFC] Cars Made OK on the C&S

Recently I was at the Colorado Railroad Museum and ran across a series of
ledgers from the mid to late 1950's titled "Cars Made OK For Sugar,
Feldspar, Plaster, Etc., On Repair Track." These were from the Colorado &
Southern Ry. I copied several pages including and surrounding the period of
interest to me (late 1958). I assume (but don't know for sure) that these
cars were "made OK" by ensuring that they didn't leak (i.e., were
watertight) and didn't have anything on the interior that would tear the
bags used for transporting, for example, sugar. I have transcribed the
copies and will post them to the files. On the pages I copied there are 312
cars listed. They came from 56 different railroads as shown below. I was
surprised to see how many were from D&H (5), IC (9), L&N (7), N&W (7), and
SOU (16). I offer this up just as something interesting, and not to get into
a Gilbert-Nelson discussion.
