Re: Frisco 1001 unusual box car


Max Robin
 

The NYC wooden bodied box cars converted to coke cars had the roof removed
and had approximately 8 wooden beams fastened to both sides of the car. The
top of these square beams were approximately flush with the top edges of the
car sides. There is a picture of one of these cars in Wayner's Freight Car
book.
