You might also look at the yahoo group 1914 - 1940 RRing that deals with the time period of interest to you.

There is much information and many of us will be happy to assist you.

Is there a specific railroad of interest to you. Annual reports from the railroad to the state railroad commission should have a list of private owner cars that were on the railroad during the year. These were reported from about 1895 to 1920.

There are many sources of cars during your time period of interest. Suggest you start with the posts that Eric Hansmann has made.

Hi All,
I am
attempting to model, in HO scale, the New York Central in
upstate New York in the World War I timeframe, let's say
1915 to 1925. Rather than focus on a single specific year I
am willing to be flexible, and those years are not set in
stone.
I am finding it
difficult to determine exactly what rolling stock would be
appropriate and where to find it.
For example, I assume that
Merchant's Despatch (MDT) 34' truss-rod reefers
would be appropriate, but I don't know that they are
commercially available. I've been scouring around
without much luck!
I'm
interested in purchasing rolling stock, either ready to run
or kits, if they exist. If anyone can point me to some
specific items it would be appreciated. I'm interested
in road names that would be found in my geographical area
but some foreign road names would be acceptable as well.
Billboard style reefers are welcome also, and I've
noticed there's no shortage of them on the market, but
I'd prefer they be somewhat prototypically correct
(within reason) for my time period and area
Is it fair to say that this is a
difficult time period to model due to availability - are
most manufacturers more focused on the present?
Thank you for any help that can be
provided, either reading material, guidance, or commercial
products.
Take
care-BrightOrange
