Re: NC & St L BOX CARS in 1950

NC&StL 16100-16599 were 36' SS cars similar to 15100-16099, but
taller (IH 8'6" vs 8'). There's a Winters photo of NC&StL 16453 in
Mainline Modeler 4/86, p 57. The article is on "Dominion" cars (same
thing as "Fowlers"); these are included as close-but-not-quites.

There's also a photo of NC&StL 16524 in Castner's NC&StL book, p 53.
The boxcar is coupled to a side-door caboose Bob Richardson for some
reason was interested in :-), but the picture shows both cars well.

NC&StL 3000-3249 were 36' DS cars similar to Southern's SU class. I
have a note that there's a photo of NC&StL 3192 in Don Ball's "Decade
of the Trains", showing Hutchins ends, but I don't have the book here
and lack a page reference.
