Re: Oregon Electric (SP&S) boxcar #206

Greetings Larry,

According to my copy of a 1924 equipment diagram, OE 206 was from OE
200-224, built by Chicago Car Equipment in 1908. Labeled as a 36' car with a
capacity of 60,000 lbs., the diagram shows a length of 40' 8" over the
pulling faces and 37' 5" along the sill. Height is shown to be 12' 4.5" rail
to running board and 13' 9.5" to top of brake wheel. The series was equipped
with arch bar trucks, tandem spring draft gear and Sharon couplers.

Have you a photo?
