Re: Erie Box Car Image

Eric Neubauer's book _Philadelphia & Reading Freight Cars: 1900 to 1914_ has drawings and photos of a similar Pressed Steel box car built in 1901 for the Reading, as well as many other contemporary freight cars. See the books link at:

Bob - The Erie car was built by Pressed Steel Car Co. circa 1902. I have the builder's photo but can't locate it at the moment. It was a standard design
they used for about 3 years. The trucks are PSC's version of the Fox trucks but not Fox. Erie also ordered 50' furniture cars of the same design; a photo and plan appear in the 1906 CBD. The box car and Iowa Central car are identical except for so trim details.
