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. . .
As Ed Workman said some years ago, anyone who has (a) gained an understanding of the renumbering of Illinois Central freight cars, and (b) completed the program of medication resulting from same, should contact him at once.
