Re: USRA 100-ton gondola car proposal

Hi Al,

TSC #9 has plans for a "U.S.R.A. Standard All-Steel 100-Ton Gondola Car" on pages 986-7

To my knowlege, this car class was never built.

What would be loaded on a flat car, that would be removed using a
rotary dumper? I'll confess to confusion.

Folks, I'm told that the USRA floated out a proposal for a 100-ton

anyone have a copy of the support for the proposal and the GA drwg or
how detailed it got being floated out for response and later voting?
Or did it even exist?

The C&O, N&W, and Virginian (and maybe Pennsy) were serious about
specialized cars built for rotary dumpers.
