Re: NYC or New Haven 90 ton flat car

Hi Bill,

You can find diagrams of New Haven DCFC's here;
http://www.alphabetroute.com/nynhh/fd.php

Look under number series beginning about 17050 to about 17069. As Bryan wrote, these two series were about 39' over striking plates. Other NH DCFC's were considerably longer.

Regards,
Peter Ness

Bill,

I can't speak to the New York Central cars, but the New Haven's
transformer cars were a shorter than 40 feet in length.
