I have a photo of a Wabash twin hopper with panel sides. The car
number is 34279. Can someone tell me a little bit about these
cars?
Are they rebuilt USRA twins or a similar design?
Gene,
My notes indicate cars from WAB 34000-34499 were USRA-style
rebuilds
with panel sides for 1941 cu. ft. capacity. The original cars were
built in 1923. A photo of 34215 taken in 1938 indicates rebuilding
11-36. Hope this helps.
Regards,
Ed Hawkins
