Re: NP 1937 AAR rebuild dates

Matt S.


I believe the NP started the re-building of these cars in 1957 or 58
and continued into the late 60's...

I don't know what the percentage of rebuilt cars in 1960 is, but I
would guess that the number of rebuild was still small...Seems like
they did the majority of work from 1964 on...

The NP modelers yahoo group has had many posts regarding these cars

Hello group,

I am working on a few N scale 1937 AAR boxcars (Intermountain), to
be finished
in the NP series 15000-17996. My modeling era is 1960.

Did NP rebuild all of these '37 boxcars by 1960, or were there some
left in the
original config? I searched the message archive but didn't find
any details
about which cars were rebuilt and when.
