It is an interesting article written by the late Bob Karig. Did he ever write the book that was referenced on the NYO&W?

David and Tony, these taller GLa clones are new to me.
I recently found an web article by the late Bob Karig describing taller GLa clones on the O&W. For a picture caption he stated "The Pressed Steel Car Company introduced this oversized Gla in 1920. It was eleven inches taller than a standard Gla, and it had a capacity of 1960 cubic feet versus the standard Gla's 1683 cubic feet. "
The web article is at: http://nyow.org/oversized_gla.html
Were there other railroads that had similar cars? I recall a long time ago that, David, you did a GLa roster. I'll have to find it in my saved files and review it.
