To provide some clarification to
the discussion (looking into the future) -
According to ORER’s, the first
group of CB&Q leased Mather cars, 20000-20139 (40’ 3”
inside length) was received between February 1960 and
The second group 50200-50239 (50’
inside length) was received between May 1965 and April
In both cases, the ORER’s state that repair bills should
be sent to North American Car.
1952 is he date given in the Burlington
Bulletin. However, I searched the 1959 ORER that I have
and could not find them in NYC, CB&Q, NKP, or North
American listings. The few photos I have found were all
taken in the 1966-68 date range.
haven't been able to find any evidence of the
50-foot cars being converted in 1952. 1962 is more
likely a correct date, but by then Mather didn't
did the 1952 date come from? I'm working on a full
timeline of Mather from 1880-1956, and I'd love to
see that data.
