Re: When did USRE Rebuild begin to appear

No, there is no such implication. That's what happens when you take things out
of context. The thread was about the origin of the USRE "brand name".

The TC cars were built by Pullman Standard but they were not PS-1 design. They
originally had Pullman carbuilder ends and roofs, but appear that some or all of
them received diagonal panel roofs from USRE.

The LS&I sold PS-1 box cars to USRE in 1961. And I have a note that says Tennessee Central
500-564 were leased from USRE in 1958. I evidently got this TC information from a letter to
the editor written by Stephen D. Johnson and published in the May 1989 (or possibly 1987, I
have conflicting notes) Model Railroading magazine. :-[ Eric Neubauer noted that the TC cars
were from USRE "Lot 179" so I'm guessing that means they were already in business for a while.

Tim, are you saying/implying that TC leased PS-1s from USRE? Or other types?
