Re: PRR F22 or F23 flat cars

Fred in Vt. <pennsy@...>


There is nothing in my library that records an F class built with a plow. My records do not go back further than 1919, so it may be, although I don't think it happened.
What may be the case is a car bought, or appropriated from the PRR, and rebuilt with a plow assembly in Iowa. My reasoning is that all of the old pix I have studied show a "V" type, high curved top plow attached to the pilot of a 4-4-0, or a 4-6-0.
Others are more well versed in MW equip. than I, so there might be a slim chance someone can provide proof positive.
My money is on not likely.

Subject: [STMFC] PRR F22 or F23 flat cars

Please see eBay listing Iowa Terminal RR Snow Plow Motor #60 DUPLICATE
Slide-NR Item number: 6568698378.

I've had an opportunity to take a close look at the short flat car and
some parts, notably the stake pockets, have 'PRR' cast into them.

Could this be a former PRR class F22 or F23 flat car? If yes, does
anyone know how such an item would have made its way to Mason City,
Did the PRR convert any F22 or F23 flats to snow plows?
