Re: Susquehanna 40’ boxcars c1940-48

The 36 foot boxcars Don Valentine mentioned are shown in the January 1945 ORER as well.

Although after the 1948 time period end about which you asked, the next ORER in my accumulation is from July 1950 and shows 40 of the 36 foot boxcars on the roster. 

Elsewhere online it's noted that the road had some 40 foot boxcars, which were later sold to the Monon.  The ex-LV boxcars in the familiar green "Ship With Susie-Q" lettering would appear "in the future" for this list.
