Hi everyone,

While I don't know the larger intent for the ORER search request that was originally asked for, perhaps this image (attached) of twin offset side hopper RICX 11will be of interest... it is from Railway Age - Volume 98 - 1935, available on

Ian Cranstone’s list of reporting marks show it was used by Rustless Iron, but he also points out that nothing was listed in the ORER’s.

Nothing under Rustless Iron in the "R" sections of the January 1938 and January 1943 ORERs. Could it have been a subsidiary or a division of another company and therefore listed under that name (which apparently does not start with "R").
