Re: "Car builder" is not a name

Scott, you must not have read Alice in Wonderland or you would know the difference between what
something is called, what its name is called, and what its name actually is.

There is no such thing as a "car builder's door" or "car builder's end" or whatever.  It is not a proper name, but a placeholder.  When you see "car builder" on a general arrangement diagram or other paperwork it means the railroad (buyer) let the carbuilder decide who to buy that part from rather than specifying the source itself.

Period.  End of rant.
