Re: Accurail O.B. boxcars as USRA design cars

Tony Thompson

Some of the USRA-type cars built in the 1920's had 7/8 corrugated ends and Hutchins roofs like the Accurail cars. Would the basic dimensions be correct?

     THe SP cars were exact USRA cars and were built in 1919. Some had Hutchins roofs, some did not; all had 5-5-5 ends. Can't speak for other roads.
