I'll claim it was a typo <G>. Yes, the eave height was 12' something, not 10' something...

I think there is an error or I am confused regarding dimenisions in the Bruce Smith article on the FGE wood reefers. I believe the ORERS list the rail to eve height for the cars as 12-1 for the early (1921-2) and 12-8 for the later (1927-8) and 12-11 for the late 1940 rebuilds in lieu of the article stated 10-1 (or 10-2)and 10-8; all give or take an inch. Perhaps this is just a typo of 10ft versus 12 ft or am I missing something?
Fine magazine and articles worthy of a railroad which was the "standard of the world" (even if it was self proclaimed).
