Re: diagonal panel roof

And in addition, diagonal panel and rectangular panel roofs were applied
concurrently for at least two years, 1948 and 1949. I can't find any examples
of RP roofs applied after 1949...

Robert,

The AAR's Car Construction Committee revised all the 1500 series plates making the diagonal panel roofs (riveted and welded) standard in October of 1947. Thru the history of this list we have never seen evidence of the diagonal panel applied until 1948.
