So I will stop railing on people who call these cars X29s, since
they are tantamount to being X29s after all.
Jeff, did the NYC also buy the earlier ARA design box cars? I have
a note that says lot 439-b was of this type. It may have come from
a Prototype Modeler Oct 1978 article but I'm not sure...
No, Tim, Lot 439-B (capital "B", pleases) were regular USRA steel
cars. For non-USRA steel cars, I don't know where anybody got the
idea that NYC had anything other than the 100 cars in Lot 504-B
