Re: A&EC box cars (was Intermountain Deco end XM)

Thanks for the correction Ed !

To add to your list - 936, 1019 & 1020 also had round corner ends.

The other photos I have are all duplicates of yours.

were incorrect because of the ends.

Tim (off list),
Not all of the A&EC box cars had square-corner Dreadnaught ends. Some that A&EC received were built in 1941 with “W”-section/round-corner Dreadnaught ends. It would take company records to know the origin of all cars as they were mixed.

Here’s a list of 10 photos I have. Perhaps you have others that can be added. 

Square-corner ends: 992, 1015, 1030, 1038, 1044, 1045, 1080

Round-corner ends: 1039, 1081, 1096
