Bill,
These cars aren't listed in the 1/59 ORER but are listed in 7/62. I
don't have immediate access to any ORERs between these dates to find
out when the cars were renumbered. The RI Color Guide shows a photo
of > 110012 but this is a 1967 photo. The book states the cars were
leased
GAEX reporting marks) before RI took ownership. That being the case,
the prototype cars built by General American in the early 1950s had
Duryea underframes and straight side sills. Perhaps Steve Hile can
shed some more information about these cars, however, it's probably
going to be post-1960 data and outside the scope of this forum.
Railmodel Journal published a couple of articles on cars of this type
in 1990-91.

Ed, Many thanks.
