I have a number of ORERs between 1923 and 1960 (actually as late as
1994 but I can't say that here) and would be happy to scan and send
the list of freight and/or passenger car M.C.B. mechanical
It should be pointed out that the definitions of some designations
changed over time and sometimes the designation changed but the
definition remained the same.
RM in 1936 was a reefer with meat rails. In 1952 the same reefer was
an RSM. GMA and GK gondolas used to be separate mechanical
designations but are now lumped together with GB gondolas.
Requests should specifiy a year or range of years.
