​The one that really got my attention was that nearly half the D&H boxcar fleet in 1950 was still 36' cars!

really excellent analysis of box car fleets... lots of food for thought in here. :-)

It was great to see everyone at Cocoa Beach this year. It is currently 15 degrees and snowing in Buffalo. As I mentioned during my clinic, I am sharing my handout here.


The shared link should take everyone to a dropbox folder with 2 files, a PDF of my Presentation without the Photos, and a Excel spreadsheet containing the data I have compiled over the past 10-12 years.  I didn’t edit the spreadsheet so there are some tabs that contain information on the rolling stock I own or want, don’t judge me, lol.   The Spreadsheet contains original data from Tim Gilbert and additional railroad data I have added from the 1957 and some 1950 ORER data.


I enjoyed giving the clinic and I received many compliments on it.  Therefore, I volunteered to give it at RPM East in March. Therefore, I have set the dropbox link to expire in a month, and then I will update the presentation for RPM East.  Any questions, you can ask on list or directly at prrk41361_AT_yahoo_DOT_com


If you weren’t at Cocoa the abstract of my clinic can be found here
