Re: other gondola to box car rebuilds

It can go the other way, too. In 1937 when the Soo Line gave up owning their reefers and began leasing from URTX, they rebuilt the newest reefers, Haskell & Barker, 1921, into flatcars, adding channel steel side sills to the fishbelly underframe.

I seem to recall reading in the trade press that Mather had a plan to rebuild surplus stockcars into gondolas, but the AAR would not approve the resulting sample car for interchange, so it wasn't done.
