Re: Auto Frames Shipped in Gondollas...

Gatwood, Elden J SAD


There were a large number of PRR G31D converted to auto frame service, as
well as the G27 mentioned earlier. There are some great photos of leased PRR
G31D with WAB reporting marks, in the Morning Sun books, since the Wabash was
a frequent leaser of PRR cars.

And yes, this service was both dedicated, but highly variable over time.
Those leased cars went in and out of service year to year or month to month.

Tnanks for your replies so far. As to the PM, I would think them a direct
competitor with the Wabash for that traffic.]

The Lafayette-Louisvile, Wab/Monon routing is interesting as my fictional
Wabash RR Indianapolis Branch which runs from Fort Wayne to Indy could route
these cars Wab/PRR instead.
