I am in the midst of completing a F&C Georgia Railroad 1924 built 4D-
XM-1 50-ton boxcar and am seeking some help for determining when the
final number of cars left the roster as reported by ORER entries. I
have read the RPC #18 article at length and determined the original
series, Georgia Railroad 19300-19449 (150 cars) became candidates for
rebuilding and were renumbered into the 29300-29449 and 39300-39449
series totaling 128 cars. Additionally, 16 cars were removed from the
19300 series and placed in series 49300-49449 while being reduced to
40-ton 4C-XM-1s. Would any one with early 1960s ORERs lend a hand in
assisting me determine what car numbers remained in 1960 through 1965.
Justin, there are no single sheathed cars in any of these series remaining in my 1/62 ORER.
