Hopper Car Photo


Whose car is this, and why is at the ACF plant inĀ 1946 (repairs, scrapping, modernizing)?
I would guess it is a in-plant car purchased secondhand from some dealer. The car doesn't have a pressed or fabricated end sill reinforcement, so it is likely from the 1903-early '04 production groups:
LV 21001-21100
P&R 81000-81499
CNJ 49500-49999
DL&W 73000-73499
JC&C 101-600 (to B&O 233000-233499)
DL&W 74000-74499
maybe Michigan Alkali 793-825
