The CSS&SB cars #1258 and #1266 look a lot like B&O cars from the
1923-constructed series of USRA clones B&O #251500 - #253499. Note
the wider, vertical corner posts at the drop ends, and the position
of the drop steps on the ends of the sides. However, they appear to
have a different handbrake arrangement from the B&O cars. Perhaps
they were built new for CSS&SB by Bethlehem??
Interesting cars! If I can remember, I will look them up in my
ORER's tonight to see when they first appeared, and how long CSS&SB
had them on the roster.
