Re: Atlas 40' USRA rebuild

Larry Kline

The photo I posted in the photos section, from the 1937 CBCyc p460, shows 129534. The photo of 128436 is from RMC, 9-89, p56. The photo of 129529 is from MRG, 6-88, p17. None of these cars is listed in exceptions notes (notes G, H, RR or L in the 4-51 ORER, pp 298-299). Therefore I believe that all three cars are in the group of 2265 cars (of 2333 total) with a 9ft 0in IH.

I agree that the photo of 129529 looks shorter. However the end proportions look the same to me.

SLSF had more than one type of rebuild .. the 1950 ORER lumps
together 127000-130499 with several subgroups -- interior heights
8'6", 8'11", 9'0", 10'0". For example, Larry sent me two photos
SLSF 128436 and SLSF 129529. The latter car appears to me to be
much shorter in height.
