Re: 50' Mather stock cars

I am stunned to see that CB&Q still rostered 2,300 stock cars in 1965! Only 97 of them were 50 foot cars.

I 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 exist.

Where 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.
