Re: Interesting Load: Lime Pulvers - CCC&StL

Heavy Photoshop intervention to remove the
perspective and boost the contrast indicates: CCC&StL 50x99
...which seems to agree with Eric's build data...

Copy of the un-skewed photo of the flat car side sill available off-list.

I reviewed the image at full magnification and
feel this is a CCC&StL flat car. Note there is a
NYC Lines oval beside a far stake pocket.
Here are a few NYC Lines flat cars with
similarities to the Tichy HO scale fishbelly center sill flat car model.

Lot 208-F NYC&HR 32500-33499 - 41-foot flat, 14
stake pockets; built 1907 by AC&F
Lot 208-F CI&S 74557-74856 - 41-foot flat, 14
stake pockets; built 1907 by AC&F
Lot 208-F CCC&StL 50000-50249 - 41-foot flat, 14
stake pockets; built 1907 by AC&F
Lot 208-F MCRR 33000-33499 – 40-foot, 10-inch
flat, 14 stake pockets; built 1907 by AC&F

That's 2050 cars built in Lot 208-F. Builder
images of a car from each of these lines can be
found in the Westerfield AC&F Collection.
Many of these cars were moved into other NYC
Lines over the years and renumbered. For
additional detail, consult the data listed under
Lot 208-F at the Canada Southern NYC freight car roster data page.
