Re: NYC box car with a star on it

While that is true, I wonder if it simply implies a car with tight floors and walls
appropriate for clean lading that doesn't require a lot of dunnage (that could harm
the walls and floors).

Later NYC cars had a yellow circle with a black "A" - is that basically the same thing?

I have a copy of the drawing book on my other computer. I would have to look up more details if needed.
