Re: E&P Associates 58 ft. depressed Center flat car

I'm reluctant to list all the railroads that had similar cars because I have no way of telling how similar any are to the specific model, but it looks like the railroads listed only scratch the surface.
NH 17080-17082 may be the first built in 6-42
UP 50001 may be the last built in 11-59 or maybe even NYC 498991-498996 built in 1-61
There are earlier cars with a 21' loading platform which seem to be shorter.
The ICG car(s) was probably nee IC.

Brian, These are based on the General Steel Castings design car body. GSC
sold the casting to several railroads as "kit cars". The C of G had 5 of
these cars built in the company shops in Savannah. I think the UP, NYC, SAL,
ACL, and PRR all had cars that used the same bodies as well. I'm sure there
were others I left out. Todd Horton

Subject: [STMFC] E&P Associates 58 ft depressed Center flat car

While at a train show I pick up an E&P Associates General Steel Industries
58 ft Depressed center Flat car. It was made by Samhongsa. It has solid
bearing trucks. It was an impulse buy but it was going for less than what
Walthers asks for their passenger cars now. It lists Roads as MP, ICG (who
before the merger) SOO, B&O, SCL, CEI, LV, SR. Anyone know where I can find
out more prototype information? Where these car covered in a Car Builder's
