Re: NYC car type?


Jeff English
 

Folks,

 

You don't hear from me very often (partly because I can't keep up with the bandwidth on this list), but I've been made aware that the topic is NYC box cars.  If anyone has a question about this particular topic, please feel free to contact me <off list> and I'll be happy to help as best I can.

 

Seth Lakin mentions "tow lugs"; as far as I know, the correct term for these is "roping staples".

 

Ben Hom is thinking about ways to parse NYC System's 50,000-car box car fleet; Ben I'd like to discuss what your ideas are.  I have a pretty good familiarity with all the groupings, but I think one of the primary organizational tools would be the NYC's "Spec"s; I have not yet gotten a hold of a document that lays out all the Specs (something I've been meaning to do for a long time, assuming NYCSHS has such an animal).
