Re: Ann Arbor war emergency hoppers


They had 75 in the 30900-30974 series. That number was reduced to 13 in 1956, down to 1 in 1961 and all gone in 1964.

With some PFE reefers just about done, I'm getting into a hopper mood!
I have a few excess C&O war emergency hoppers (P2K), but since C&O cars
were rarely, if ever seen on the PRR, I was thinking of stripping one
and repainting it Ann Arbor. I am in the process of chasing down the
RMJ articles on the war emergency cars, but in the mean time, I was
curious to know how many of these cars the Ann Arbor had.
