I was out of town when this interesting thread erupted. Bill Kelly's
answer sounds good to me. But the contention that early cars did not have
spring-loaded journal box lids is, I think, not supportable. The 1906 Car
Builders' Dictionary shows several brands of such lids. Of course not all
railroads may have installed same; but they certainly did exist.
