Two questions, do you know which car(s) went to the A&EC and secondly
which Speedwitch kit is appropriate? I couldn't locate anything on the net.
In a message dated 12/31/2012 8:13:34 A.M. Central Standard Time,
The car from the Fallen Flags site is a 40-ft car and was part of rebuilds
by the Erie from two series of cars, 70000-70999 and 71000-71567 from 1933
to 1936, originally built in 1923-24. There were 3 steel plates welded to
the steel frame on each side of the door opening while steel plating was
riveted to the inside of the framing on the ends. The cars were also fitted
with Murphy XLA roofs while retaining their trucks, original doors and u/f.
This info is from the data included w/the kit.
