Re: CNJ war emergency 52'-6" gondolas (slight correction - see date built)


Ted -

Thanks for the information. Have you ever seen a photo of one of
these cars as a composite car? Their very early built date might
indicate that the middle group of diagonal side braces were different
from all other cars of this type, and redesigned for later cars. I
am sure that the pressed braces were all made by the same company
during the war and distributed to the various car builders awarded
construction contracts.
