Tony's call on 1960 as the "watershed year" makes sense to me. The trivia debate about a handful of cars in 1958 and a big handful in 1959 doesn't really matter. It was in 1960 that the big buildup began. I'm sure by that year Ford, GM and Chrysler were all putting a lot of pressure on the railroads to get the cars in service.
