Re: Chickasaw and TCI Car Builders


Howard, Tony, All,

So would it be correct to say that TCI&R and Chickasaa were predecessors of Pullman Bessemer?

I'm writing up an article on SAL flat cars for an upcoming issue of the S-CL Modeler magazine. The cars I'm covering, the SAL F-4 class 40-foot flat cars, were built by Chickasaw and Tennessee Coal & Iron in 1922. I'd like to include some information on these carbuilders and have picked up a little info with the standard internet searches, but the information on freight car building is lacking. If any of you guys would care to share your knowledge of these carbuilders can you please give me a shout?
