Re: Illinois Central 40' ss boxcar information

1941-1942, not 1934. Most of the IC's single sheathed cars were rebuilt during the war years, and it does appear that all of them with wood doors (40' and 50'') got the rienforcing plate at the bottom of the doors.

Hi Eric,


In the Ted Culotta article in RMC that was referred to in Ben Hom’s response to me states that all of the car doors received steel reinforcing plates at the bottom of the doors during the 1934 rebuilding project.
