I am a member of the SFRHMS. I have amassed a large library of reference books, including many written by yourself. I've only read a small portion of them in detail. My primary intent of this post was to find the best place to start. I can identify what type of car (box, hopper, etc) and size. I can generally identify the railroad. I can identify general types of construction for sides and ends. I can tell a sliding door from a plug type. I'm weak on roofs. When it comes to detaIls, do you focus on stirrup styles, brake system details, brake wheels, roof walks, etc? Should I focus on details or take a broader stroke first? Like so many other things in our world, it is probably another "it depends" situation. I'm trying see where I should focus my attention first. All of the feedback has been great.
