Re: Attaching side sheathing and floor boards in Single Sheathed box cars
Walter Clark asked:
I seem to remember reading somewhere (maybe here) that the side sheathingCertainly the SP single-sheathed cars all show that the attachments
visible on the outside of the car, connecting sheathing to posts and
braces, are nuts on bolts. I'd assume these are carriage-bolt type items,
with heads on the inside to keep the car interior as smooth as possible.
I'd guess that other owners of such cars used the same method.
