Re: Reservations Needed: PRR X29 Boxcar (HO Scale)

it's obviously a typo. the cars are obviously the same height (compare the doors)

the cars are not listed in the 1975 ORER. probably in company service at the date of the photos.

Matt,

If the capacity information given with the second photos is correct, 3879 cubic feet, CHP 5598 cannot be an X29. X29s had a capacity of 3034 cubic feet. That is even bigger than the X28's 3278 cubic feet.

Yours Aye,
