Re: SOO Line prewar 50 foot double door box car


Steve and Dennis, thank you for your replies as they fill-in some gaps in my knowledge of freight cars. I didn't realize Pullman-Standard had this thing and actually built boxcar with interior lengths of 50-ft.

In this period, the depression, my railroad, the B&O, was building experimental and production wagon-top box cars in their own shops and not working much with commercial car builders.
