Re: riveted PS-1's? (was Model Box Car End ID)
Dennis - were the cars built with PS-style welded underframes or AAR underframes? The
PS underframe had features not found on the AAR design.
I know that some welded cars with PS proprietary ends and roofs had AAR underframes.
And I think those were all built before 1950.
Chew on this - most PS-1 ends after 1950 had welded mid-seams. But NOT all of them. The
Southern Pacific riveted B-50-37 "PS-1" box cars built in 1955 also had riveted mid-seams on
their ends. I have not checked other roads' riveted cars for this feature, but now I wonder if
any had welded mid-seams along with their riveted sides.
I just think some roads preferred riveted sides!
