Re: [Non-DoD Source] [RealSTMFC] Rails and Hoists for Spools of Rayon


Bruce Smith
 

There was an American Viscose Rayon plant in Lewistown, PA, served directly by the PRR, that operated from 1921 until 1974. In the 1950's the captive service rayon cars for this plant consisted of 18 PRR X37B boxcars. It is my understanding that the rayon from this plant was primarily used in tire manufacturing.
