Re: WM auto car

James D Thompson <jaydeet@...>

In 1936 Greenville built a small lot of 40' auto cars for the Western
Maryland, 30001-30010. These cars had 12' doors, a 10' 4" inside height,
and Viking roofs. They were frequently pictured in Greenville's ads in
the Cycs and other trade press, shown only in a side view.

Can anyone tell me what sort of end these cars had?
They had a 4-3 *inverse* Buckeye end with the roof end inset a bit, as
on the C&O and PM auto cars delivered around that time.

Also, does anyone know if the ends and/or roof were coated with black
car cement? Presumably the sides were freight car red.
The ends and roof were the same color as the sides. RPC#4 has a 3/4 end
view on p.30.
