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

Larry Grubb <larry450sl@...>

From my ORERs:
April 1946: 17 stock cars, 3000-3099 and 14 box cars, 5000-5099
April 1952: No cars.

Hopefully others can narrow it down even further.

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?
