Max, to the best of my knowledge DL&W owned no 1932 AAR box cars. They didI didn't see this before sending my latest note to Max. I gotta admit,
Richard, that I didn't realize that the slight difference in the ends of the
dreadnaughts were that unusual. But I guess so now that I compare them to
those on other roads.
Learn something every day, though it appears that the Westerfield ends could
be filed to replicate this.
Al Westerfield, I recently found a photo of one of these cars tipped over
after the 1955 flood that clearly shows the underframe without the trucks.
All the best, ....Mike
