Re: National Car Company

Thanks for the photos and to the others who replied with information. Looking through a CB&Q-published 1969 Equipment List, I found that it lists
MNX 1700-243 and LNX 2444-2464 as being leased to Burlington Refrigerator Express and no others so perhaps I have the answer.

In the steam and transition era I believe the NX cars were owned by the FGEX consortium and was designed to be the meat hauler of the group.  In 1951 a large percentage of their cars were classed as RBM or RSM with meat rails.

I am trying to identify all the cars in the National Car Company which were owned by the CB&Q / BRE. So far I have MNX 1700-2364, starting in 1949, with 2444-2464 being changed to LLNX in 1967. LLNX was allocated to WFE at that time so I don’t know if they were sold, leased or what.

So, did the BRE own any other National cars?
