Can you provide documentation to support your assertion of only
10,000 being built before the construction was altered?
As well as can you support your assertion that the label "Domion
Car" was the "label", when they were built by C.C.F., Eastern Car
& Foundry, National Steel car, as well.
And frankly, I doubt very much that the purchasing railroads
refered to this design as anything other than 36', steel frame,
30/40 ton boxcars.
Fowler boxcar and Dominion Car are, in my opinion, labels
generated my modelers and historians

Please name even one stock car

The fact of the matter is that fewer
than 10,000 BOX CARS were constructed that utilized this
patent before it was found to
be an unneeded extra expense and was
dropped from use in construction of all further cars of
this type that are more
properly known as Dominion Cars based
upon the fact that Dominion Car & Foundry was the
initial builder of such cars.
How long is this ridiculous misnaming
of the type going to continue?
Cordially, Don Valentine
