Re: automobile box cars (was ACL Freight Car Color)
Check the XMR column of the "special type cars" circular that is published in the ORER.
In 1963, it still shows
ATSF - 69 cars in 6 series
B&O - 360 cars in 6 series
CN - 977 cars in 2 series
and so on and so forth ...
So even though most cars lost their "automobile" stencils (when they ever had them to begin with)
there were still a lot of box cars capable of transporting automobiles in interior racks throughout the
1950's and even later. The SP still had well over 1,000 XMR box cars in 1963!
