Re: ACR Side Construction

Terry Metcalfe's UP Freight Cars book (p 93) mentions that the B-50-24 construction saved
over 5,000 pounds over the B-50-19 and that the October 1939 issue of Railway Mechanical
Engineer has an extensive article on the cars. If someone has that issue of RME maybe we can
find out whether they had a name for this style of construction. :-)

Has to be a modeler's term. On the prototype they'd be concerned with the structural member, not the attachment rivets.
