Re: PS-1 Roofwalks

Tim O'Connor

As far as I know from a few photos and notes --

 C&O 16000-16749: APEX rb
 C&O 16750-16999: GYPSUM rb
 C&O 17000-17999: APEX rb
 C&O 18000-18499: GYPSUM rb

I have general arrangement drawings for two classes of C&O PS-1s.

C&O 15000-15999, 40' cars with 6' doors built in 1948, had Apex Tri-Lok running boards and brake steps. C&O 18500-18999, 40' cars with 8' doors built in 1952, had Gypsum running boards and brake steps. There were two other groups of 8' door cars, but I don't have the drawings.

Yours Aye,

Garth Groff

Does anyone know if the C&O used a specific brand of roofwalk on their
PS-1 Boxcars. I would have thought that they were all the same, however,
I remembered that the WP used Morton roofwalks on their cars.

Thanks in advance for any help:
