Re: pre PS1 box cars

The IC continued to buy whole or partial kits for a much longer time period. But these particular
PS-0 (sorry) cars were not purchased by the IC nor were they sold as kits.

This is the IC car built in 1947 (29500-30499). If they were a PS kit they still included SRE dreadnaught
ends and SRE rectangular panel roofs. Pullman Standard built whatever the buyer wanted, welded or riveted,
with or without PS proprietary parts.

Are these the "kit cars" PS sold to the railroads prior to the PS1s?  I have some documentation the IC bought some and built them at their Centralia Car Shops in 1947.
