Possible renumbering of IC 170001-175000 boxcars

Mark Heiden

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for some information regarding possible renumbering of
some Illnois Central bocxars, series 170001-175000. These are 40ft
single sheathed boxcars with fishbelly underframes and composite ends.
They were built 1914-1915. There is a photo on the pay side of the
NEB&W website:


The NEB&W site lists these cars as off the roster by 1949. Is it
possible that these cars were still on the roster at that time, but
under a different number series?
