Re: WW II Orders (not Banana Movements)

Jerry's probably right. I hadn't looked up the date and wasn't sure off the
top of my head if it was late in '47 or early '48 that the order was
rescinded. It gave the Santa Fe (and probably PFE also) a lot of grief,
because under its provisions any RS was supposed to be as good as any other,
and foreign-road cars were sent west instead of the SFRDs the Santa Fe
wanted to get back. On the other had, it gives me an excuse to have more
foreign reefers on my 1947 layout might otherwise be justified.

So long,

Andy
