Re: Non-standard height 1923 ARA Steel boxcars

HPT&D did indeed sell off 20 of their 10’ IH 1923 ARA cars, per a letter to the O.C. Duryea Corp. dated November 1948, to the Exporting and Importing Company of Dallas, Texas.  According to the correspondence, ten of those cars went to Texas for ultimate use in Mexico.  The other ten were shipped to FEC in Jacksonville for repairs, ultimately ending up on the West India Fruit & Steamship Company.
