GM&O 32000-32899 2-bay open hoppers

Lee Gautreaux

I am trying to update my GM&O freight cars page and have a question regarding the GM&O 32000-32899 series 2-bay open hoppers.  I know that GM&O 32000-32249 (lot 5633) and 32400-32899 (lot 5932) were built by PS in 1940 and 1949 respectively.  However, my July 1950 ORER lists 889 cars in the series leading me to believe that 32250-32399 were added during the 1940's.  The info I have for the ending and beginning series is from the PS data book by Neubauer and I don't see anything else between.  Does anyone have any info on the missing cars?
