"Careful, too, about a tiny Susie PS-1 detail often overlooked - a portion of them had marker brackets on all four corners for Railway Express service and run as the last car on some passenger trains. The lone surviving car, 402, still has the marker brackets and no evidence of steam lines. All but two were sold to the Monon, and it's unlikely the Monon would have removed the brackets so pictures should show them.
That Fowler boxcar mentioned previsouly in this thread also had marker brackets on four corners, and at one time steam lines. Could these have been the only Fowler boxcars in passenger service?"
 
Ben Scanlon replied:
"If by Fowler, you mean the MILW composite boxcar, does that imply that NYS&W used the car attached to their Stillwells, Budds or Osgood Bradley coaches?"

Why are you fixated on that ex-MILW boxcar?
ummm, that would be because he wrote 'That Fowler boxcar' implying the single, hence I thought he meant the single car which was the focus of the discussion, as opposed to a series of Fowlers which were also mentioned.
