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

Benjamin Scanlon

I've been sent an ORER page indicating that the CN&L 2500-2524 and the later series 2525-2549 (which 2530 was part of) were 8'6" IH by 8'6" inner width ... so I'm assuming the outside width of the cars was probably more like 8'8 1/2" over the sheathing.  Same ORER gives a overall width over eaves of 9'3 1/2" which sounds sufficient for the bracing etc.   

Thanks to all
