Fred Jansz asked:
"Received my OMI 'Wabash' steel dd boxcar today...NOT. This 'wooden' SS beauty was in the box. It reminds me of something, but not a steel Wabash DD car. Any idea what it might be?"
Notes from Chet French, posted on the Steam Era Freight Cars website:
" In 1941, the Wabash converted 239 of the 46000 series auto cars to 6' door cars and numbered them 76000-76238. The roster showed 93 car remaining as of July 1, 1957. They looked similar to the 74000 series 6' door cars converted from the 40000 series auto cars."
