Re: Rio Grande PS1
I have images of SIX of the 50150 to 50499 cars and all them are 10-0 IH and have 7 foot doors.
Exactly one railroad bought 10-0 IH PS-1 box cars with 7 foot doors - the New Haven. And they
bought 1500 of them!
Some appear to have gone to ACY, some CNW, and some continued on under PC and then CR.
All of the New Haven PS-1's were built before 1950, so the roofs would be the early PS-1 style.
The ORER lists the entire series as 10-6 with 7 foot doors. So don't trust everything in the ORER ! :-D
