Re: DS/SS split 1938 help needed

Larry,

Doug Harding's question was essentially the same as yours with regards to the RI cars. They were class B1 with double wood sheathing over a steel car body framing and steel underframe.

Regards,
Steve Hile

Hi Folks

I am transferring the box, auto and ventilator car data from the
January 1938 ORER into an Excel spreadsheet, and adding sheathing
type (DS/SS/Steel) and build/rebuild date as auxiliary information.
I have the sheathing type for about 95% of the U.S. fleet, and am
requesting your help in reducing the number of "unknowns". (See
message #69380 for the U.S. summary.)

Nearly a third of the "unknowns" are in the following series:
Road, AAR, Kind, Series, IL, IH, Door, Capy, Qty 1938, Qty 1942
ACL, VM, Box, 34000-36184, 36'0", 7'5", 6'0", 60000, 782, NA
CMO, XM, Box, 29200-31198, 40'0", 7'11", 5'0", 80000, 611, NA
CNW, XA, Auto, 34900-36898, 40'6", 10'0", 10'0", 80000, 997, 12
FW&D, XM, Box, 6001-7200, 40'0", 7'10", 5'6", 80000, 557, 442
IC, XM, Box, 245451-246200, 36'4.5", 8'0", 6'0", 80000, 664, NA
IC, XM, Box, 247001-247600, 36'4.5", 8'0", 6'0", 80000, 513, NA
IC, XM, Box, 330001-331800, 36'4.5", 8'0", 5'6", 80000, 794, NA
MP, XA, Auto, 82500-83249, 40'6", 10'0", 11'0", 80000, 735, 52
NC&StL, XM, Box, 13500-15099, 36'0", 8'0", 6'0", 80000, 1311, 352
RI, XM, Box, 33000-38199, 40'0", 7'11", 6'0", 80000, 2045, 124
RI, XM, Box, 38200-40699, 40'0", 7'11", 6'0", 80000, 1125, 91

Can someone identify whether these cars are DS, SS, or Steel and what
their build or rebuild dates were?

Thank you very much for whatever help you can provide.
