Members of the Pacific Locomotive Association voted yesterday evening to
retain ATSF 213612, in part due to the information members of this group
provided. One of the backers of keeping the car reported to me:

" Thanks in no small part to your tremendous efforts in nearly- instantaneous
freight car historical research, only 14 of 40 voting members present at the
meeting voted for the deaccession of ATSF 213612. (A 2/3 majority was
required for the deaccession to pass.) I had given the meeting a short
"chalk talk" and 1-page handout on the car, emphasizing that it was much
rarer than the Collections Committee first thought, and emphasizing its age
and historical importance."
Jack, that's good news. I'm glad I was able to contribute some useful information. I'd love to see that car restored, and I'll be happy to help out with photos and documentation should such an effort get underway.
