FtDDM&S Mather Box Cars

Richard Hendrickson

There is a photo in the Charles Winters collection of a Fort Dodge, Des
Moines & Southern Mather box car repainted and reweighed at Mather's
Chicago Ridge shops in March, 1955, apparently at the time the car was
leased to the FtDDM&S (as there is no listing for 14000 series cars in the
1/55 or earlier ORERs). There is also no listing for these cars in the
10/58 ORER, so the lease period was apparently brief. Can anyone with ORER
issues between those dates confirm how many cars Mather leased to the
FDtDM&S and what the exact number series was?
