End date for Mather cars on East St. Louis Junction R.R.?


Scott Pitzer
 

Richard Hendrickson's Mather box car article in RMJ August 2003 refers
to the EStLJctRR's entire freight car fleet, as of 10/47, being leased
from Mather (they had stock cars too.)
The January 1953 ORER states there are no freight cars owned by the
road, and there's no listing of leased cars in that entry or in the
Mather Co. entry.
When did the last cars disappear?
