Re: ACL 38485-40384

You'll have to go earlier than 1940. Not thee either.

I looked at the Valuation report also with its "various builders"; the ACL freight car diagrams from 1947 no longer show these cars. Need to find an earlier diagram book. ACL clearly lists the car builder on its diagram sheets.

The B&S order apparently refers to ACL 40385-41284 which apparently came along with ACL 13065-13164 auto cars as built by B&S. Both series are listed separately in the valuation report, leaving little doubt. The 900 unknown cars in ACL 38485-40384 appear to be missing from the Railway Age annual order summaries. Unfortunately, the valuation report lumps the earlier orders together.

The Railway Age Gazette for Jan 1914 showing cars built in 1913 shows an order or 900 box cars going to Barney & Smith.

ACL 38485-40384 (1900) were apparently built in 1913. 1000 were ordered from Mt. Vernon, the other 900 from an unknown source. Does anyone have built date or builder information from any car in this number range?
