Re: Grand Truck Western (GTW) Box Cars

Catching up on old emails.... Andy is partly correct -- these cars
were rebuilt from modified 1937 AAR box cars with 5/5 ends and 10'6"
inside height. I have a later photo that shows the ends and roof and
a new number series in the Good Track paint scheme.

Are you sure? It seems to have diagonal panel roof and a 10'6 interior
height, seems aq little more recent than '37.

The 40' plug door car has early Dreadnaught ends. Obviously rebuilt from a
single door 10 panel '37 AAR boxcar.
