The Northern States Power Co. bought 4 hopper cars from AC&F delivered
10-48 under lot 3307. The builder's photo was NSP 4517. The 70-ton
triple hopper cars were 38'-6" inside length, and all-welded
construction with offset sides and outside posts. The St. Louis
Mercantile Library has a bill of materials and photos of the car. I
didn't document the car number series of the 4 cars that were built or
any of the details in the bill of materials. I don't find the cars
listed in the ORER so presumably they were not interchanged.
The NSP cars used most of the same set of AC&F drawings and were
essentially identical to C&O, M-K-T, and Missouri Portland Cement
hopper cars built under lots 3266 (C&O 91000-93999), 3282 (M-K-T
40101-40300), 3294 (MOCX 314-363), and 3310 (C&O 94000-94999), 3379
(C&O 96000-97999), and 3404 (C&O 99000-99499).
