Early train length laws

al.kresse <water.kresse@...>


Maybe this a new subject?

Do we have any information on State Legist's attempting to mandate
maximum number of freight cars allowed per train?

Andrew Dow's great N&W Coal Car book refers to that being a driving
reason for building 120-ton and 90-ton "Battleship Gons" in the late
teens and early twenties. Do we have copies of specific proposed rules?

Were there Federal proposes also?
