Many thanks to Eric Lombard, Ben Hom, Bill Hirt, and Tim O'Connor for their help, and especially the photos!  Now all I have to do, is figure out what "handsomely rewarded" means.  Perhaps I can purchase a liquid refreshment of your choice next time I see you.

Thanks again!

>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.
