thiscars. I think I see a Dreadnaught square corner end. When might
extendingcar have been built? Were there more? When was it retired?Ten cars numbered 30990-30999. They were rebuilt in 1965 by
the length of some 20000 20499 series boxcars, originally built inthe
NP shops in 1931-'32, from 40'6" IL to 50'3" IL – hence the off-center
doors. IIRC, this was done to provide a small number of cars forin
the '70s.Darn! I was hoping such car would be a candidate for my model RR set
in 1950. It was the truss pattern that interested me. Well, that
and the length.
