Re: Freight Car Oddities

Ben, the first Hydra-Cushion box car was completed in December 1954.

Does this car still exist, and if so, where? This may well be a good
candidate for an ASME Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark designation.
I used to chair that committee and would be interested in pursuing it. What
information on the car do you--or anyone else, for that matter--have?

If this car no longer exists, does anyone know of the oldest Hydra-Cushion
