CNJ USRA SS boxcars

I misread Ben's message where he correctly said that CNJ DID OWN  true USRA boxcars. Sorry Ben.

Ben,

You're forgetting the class CNJ XMf 20000-20499 series built by ACF Madison in 1919. They are listed in the Lane roster in Railroad History No 128, the CNJ diagram calls them USRA design, and I have a nice Al Armitage photo of 20379 from Ron Morse.

Be advised that CNJ did own true USRA SS boxcars, and referring to their other boxcars as "USRA boxcars" is misleading and incorrect.
