Re: CN&L 2500 series s/s boxcar width

I have a photo of 2530 in my collection so it must have been a larger group although I have not checked my ORER. I would argue that the cars are more derivative of the CN cars built circa 1916 from which the USRA 50-ton car was arguably derived.  CN&L cars were 6-inches shorter than USRA cars.
