Re: More with freight car classes

S. Busch

Frank Valoczy asked whether SLSF, C&O or WM used freight car classification systems. I can't speak about the SLSF or WM, but according to Carl Shaver's book "Freight Car Equiptment of the C&O Rwy. August 1, 1937", the C&O used a classification system for only a short time, from about 1926 through about 1934. After that, cars were referenced by their AAR designation and capacity.
