Re: Need Help With Built Date: HPCX 1200-1210

Garth Groff <sarahsan@...>


Gone by October 1958, according to my ORER. Interestingly, they do list four boxcars, 400-403 with steel underframes (suggesting a wood superstructure), IL 40' 6", IH 8', 2862 cu ft, and 404-407 (without any descriptive comments, but likely also wooden), at 36' 8", IH 7' 7", 1555 cu ft.

Yours Aye,

I'm doing some research on the Hercules Powder Co rolling stock (reefers) and I need to get the built date and possibly the date these cars were no longer listed in the ORER. I BELIEVE the built date was 12/49 and I know that the Oct.1953 ORER lists these cars (8 cars 1200-1210) but that's the only guide I have. Can someone please look up this info for me? I would really appreciate any help.
