Re: B&O Boxcar 275057


The initial 1923 proposal didn't get enough votes to pass the first time around, so some revisions were made and it passed in 1924. The changes were fairly minor (truck centers were reduced from 32'6" to 32'3", for example).

PRR kept the 5' striker length, but most other roads went to 5'6" after 1927.
