Friends,

D&RGW series 23000-23099 were 53' 6", 50-ton cars built by AC&F in 1956. They were nearly identical to series 22000-22199 built in 1944 by Mt. Vernon, and 22200-22249 which were built by the D&RGW itself in 1951. All are close matches for the PK2000 flat car.

Credit Jim Eager for this information. It's from his RIO GRANDE COLOR GUIDE TO FREIGHT AND PASSENGER EQUIPMENT (Morning Sun, 1996).

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff  🦆
