The Central of Georgia had 500 40-ton steel underframe box cars with
Van Dorn ends. They were in series 51001--51500, built by Standard
Steel Car in August 1912 at Hammond, Indiana. There is an article
with photos in the Central of Georgia Railway Historical Society's
October-December 2001 issue of THE RIGHT WAY.

Van Dorn ends.
They were used on at least 4 different cars circa 1912 but onlyone road used
them in any quantity - an IC 1-1/2 door auto car with, as Irecall, 350 cars.
All others were minor experiments: 1 B-50-4 for SP, 25 XL for PRRand 1 MILW.
I'm hoping to have the XL by next May for the PRRT&HS annualmeeting. - Al
HO? The ends are the ones that resemble a bullseye target. Also,when were
these last seen in service? Thanks to those who can help.insurance
