Re: USRA DOUBLE SHEATH BOXCAR DRAWINGS
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As always I will defer to Tony's expertise on anything freight car related. I believe that many railroads built their own cars from the USRA design. Certainly the cars went through a number of incarnations once on line in brake gear and other appliances. I do get confused, however, with the comment accompanying many comments in articles stating that "XYZ railroad TOOK DELIVERY
of a certain number of USRA box cars". Did these railroads specify specific alterations to the original design?

Didn't Mainline Modeler did an extensive series on these boxcars in the late 1970's I seem to remember.
