Re: When did USRE Rebuild begin to appear

Hi Bill,


Wikipedia references a John H. White contribution “ "Railroad Car Builders of the United States". Railroad History. The Railway and Locomotive Historical Society. 138 (Spring 1978): 23–29.” and states USRE started in 1954 in Blue Island IL. Evans acquired USRE but I am not sure of the date.  Probably after the end of time for this group.

USRE is/was the rebuilder of freight cars and used for corporate identity an outline of the continental United States stenciled on the side of boxcars that is easy to spot in photos. My question is does anyone know when this company began their business?
