Re: ACY 175-194 flatcars

Richard I did some digging around and given that these cars were 42'1"long and built in 1923 they might possibly be clones of the USRA flatcar. Red Caboose, now Intermountain, makes a model of this car. Freight car historian Richard Hendrickson did an extensive article on the prototype cars in the January 1997 issue of Railmodel Journal. Given that the AC&Y cars were leased and second hand it's unknown who the original owner could be. Bob Weston
