Re: MONON box cars

It is not showing up in the first ORER you mention because the build date is 4/47, not 42.  These were the Monon's first 50 foot boxcars.  As I mentioned, they were renumbered out of the 1200 series quickly, so the cars are in the 1300, 1400 & 1500 series and are not listed under 1200 later.  The Monon did have a series of 40 foot cars in appliance service that were renumbered out of the 9000 series into the 1201-1225 in 1947.
