Re: NYC wood sheathed boxcar with Bettendorf T section trucks.

   The NYC seems to have been an early heavy user of Bettendorf T section trucks. Was there not 
also a later version of the trucks that appeared in the mid to late teens? In any case, it was not only
the NYC on which they found favor but many, many NYC controlled or affiliated roads. The Boston
& Albany used them and almost all box cars purchased by the Rutland in the 1920's were equipped
with them when new. They could also be seen under B&A and Rutland cabeese.

Cordially, Don Valentine
