Re: Photos: Auto Loader (Circa 1930s)

George Eichelberger

Here is a Google Drive link, courtesy of the Southern Railway Historical Assoc. archives, to three drawings, circa 1935 for Evans auto loaders. Southern drawing SF-40545 shows instructions for using the racks that was stenciled inside the Sou 272000 series 40’ dbl door box cars. Among the first Southern all-steel box cars. (A model of a box car, door open, with racks being unloaded would be spectacular on a layout or as a museum exhibit.)


PS There are many, many Southern and CofG drawings in the SRHA archives at TVRM. Visitors, and donations, are welcome.
