Yes, it sounds like a professional degree...
But, no, does anyone
know about the 15 box cars, DR 6001-6015? They look like standard AAR
1937 cars with Dreadnaught 4-5 ends and a steel roof without raised panels.
(but the ORER, confusingly, provides ARA 1932 inside dimensions and AAR 1937
These appear on the DEVCO Ry (the Cape Bretron Development Corp.
Railway, Coal Division) starting mid 1968. John Riddell in "Canadian Railways
Color Guide... Volume 1..." pictures #6012 and indicates the series was built
7-1940 by ECC.
There is a contemporary photo of #6006 as a work and
storage facility at the Orangedale Railway Museum on Cape Breton Island, NS,
is some hint that at the Sydney and Louisberg Ry Museum site that they were
inherited from the Sydney and Louisburg Ry (taken over by DEVCO).
Where were these cars between 1940 and 1968ish? Anyone
Thanks in advance
