NYC (MDT) Boxcars – Lot 852-B


Has anyone got any photos (builder’s or in-service) of the 50 foot, double door boxcars in Lot 852-B?  That lot of 100 cars was built in late 1954 with ‘Despatch’ end and roof stampings.  The car numbers were NYC 73900 to 73999.


I have already checked the equipment books issued by Wayner,  Morning Sun and The Railfan Press (TRP).


Thanks in advance for any contributions to this effort!  Research is not easy for those outside the NYC’s old service territory.
