Clark,

This might be of some help understanding from where the term originated: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreadnought . In general, the manufacturers of railroad specialties like car ends and roofs like macho-sounding names: Dreadnaught, Indestructible, Viking, etc. Pure marketing. I'm sure Richard will jump in here shortly with more specific information.

Kind regards,


Garth G. Groff
