1960s and all that


One good reason to use a circa-1960 cutoff is that the world of freight
cars changed GREATLY around that time: gigantic tank cars, 60-ft. box cars,
85-ft. pig flats, Center Flow covered hoppers, etc., all of which created
an appearance radically different from what preceded it. Even roller
bearings, for that matter; I have a friend who says, "I model the solid
bearing era."
