Re: Aluminum Box Cars?

Off the top of my head the Alton, RI and M&StL all got ten. Maybe another road too? Maybe the same number for the C&O and NKP? But their cars came later with newer designed parts. These cars were built using leftover aluminum sheets from WWII airplanes. I do know two M&StL were damaged. By then the replacement parts were so expensive they used steel parts and painted the cars in their paint scheme in use at the time.
