Needle in a Haystack

Gary Roe

I recently learned of a little shortline in Jerseyville, Illinois called the Jerseyville & Eastern.  Sometime between the Jan 1957 and Jan 1958 issues of the ORER, they acquired 3, 40 ton steel box cars.  The IL was 40'-6, IH was 9'-0, and they had 6' doors.  Reporting marks were "JE" and were numbered 100-102.  It is not known if these were purchased second hand.

Any help with info would be appreciated, and a photo would be handsomely rewarded.
