Re: Autocar ID

Thanks to both Tony and Richard (the two resident experts did each take a swing at it). I wondered about SP, as they did have singlesheathed 50' door-and-a-half cars in several varieties, but if Tony says no, I can't imagine anyone better informed on SP freight cars. Now, I wonder how the MP diagram got in this collection, but after all these years I doubt I shall ever learn.

Here's one for the resident experts: among a large quantity of model
drawings and instructions sheets that just arrived is what appears to
be a
genuine sheet from a prototype diagram book, but without identifying
The collection comes from California, which may (or may not) be
50 Ton Auto #86000-86149, 50' 6" single-sheathed autocar with fishbelly
steel underframe, built by Mt Vernon 1929, Dreadnaught ends, Youngstown
doors. The last notation on the sheet is 12-46.
I don't know what it is, Justin, but it isn't SP.
