Re: SAL 36500-36699 hoppers

I had a quick look through my ORERs, and this particular series seems to have appeared between the July 1935 and July 1937 issues.

I'm just guessing here (a dangerous thing to do on this list) but
the cars in question may have come from the Georgia, Florida &

The answer to this is yes. It was not until later in the 50's
that these
cars were off the roster and their numbers taken over by woodchip
Now, as a side note, that being said, these cars were rebuilt into
wet rock
phosphate cars toward the end of their lives.

Also, as Ben stated, the SAL was not allocated any cars. These
purchased 2nd hand by the Seaboard.

One clarification - SAL was not allocated any USRA twin
hoppers. These
were copies built to the same dsign in the 1920s. I don't have
a 1951
ORER, but will check my 1950 ORER later this evening.
