Rick the Bx-50 and Bx-53 class cars were riveted 12 panel cars. Also the Bx-51,60, 62 and 63 classes were also 12 panel riveted cars. The Bx-48's were also riveted except for that group of 10 cars you mentioned.

Hi all,I'm trying to determine if the side panels on all the classes of ATSFwere riveted or not.I know that a group of cars, (274740-274749), in the Bx-48 class hadwelded panels but I am unsure about the Bx-50 and Bx-53 cars and Ican't tell from the photos I have of these cars.Any help will be greatly appreciated.Rick DietrichsonWilmington, NC
