Based on data in Wabash equipment inventory documents and a
stenciling diagram, cars 13500-13749 were built during mid to late
1944, and 13750-14849 were added during 1945-46. All were
apparently built at the Wabash Shops in Decatur, IL. These cars
inherited trucks from retired cars and so some had Andrews trucks
and some had AAR/Bettendorf type.
I have an excellent side view of WAB 13963 taken in March, 1957 at San Diego, CA from Bob's Photo collection. This car has Andrews trucks. Drop me a line if you would like a scan to aid your modeling efforts.
