Re: Railroad-Owned Poultry Cars


I am tied up for the weekend, but I remember Southern was one of them. I seem to remember that plans for theirs were published in one of the Freight Car cyclopedias.

Railroad-Owned Poultry Cars

According to the book, Car Shop Practice, from the Board of Railway Mechanical Officials and the Railway Training Institute (published in 1925), there were 24 railroad-owned poultry cars in service in 1924.

Does anyone have a 1924 ORER that would tell us which railroads owned these poultry cars?
