Re: Height of Tank Car Handrail

Bill,
A quick look at AC&F drawings shows the height of the handrail from running board for 10,000 gal ICC 103 cars to run from 3' 11 3/4" to 4' 4 15/16". Semet Solvay cars show different heights possibly depending on the tank size. Do you actually have a Semet Solvay drawing?

Just an observation but AC&F doesn't seem to have had a definite idea of what the height should be. Perhaps it was based on some manager's height?
