Looks like it is white, should be silver

This is an example of a Mather design 40' reefer built ca.1912 as I recall by Haskell and Barker.They are predecessors of the well known steel frame cars.There were quite a number of PO lessors of these cars. Mather had some of these on lease as late as the late 30's. IRM has drawings. One later lessor was Oppenheimer Casing Co. of Chicago ca. 1930

Actually, that's PFE car no. 1. The number was so dirty that it has been "enhanced" slightly in white, but is hard to see. The PFE people I interviewed vouched for the authenticity of this image, but I didn't use it in the PFE book because you can't really see a clear number.
Car no. 1 certainly did survive into the 1920s to get the 1922 scheme you see in this image. The PFE shop lists show that.

Not a builders photo- paint scheme is later than when this car was built: it is one of the original PFE R-30-1 or -2
cars built ca. 1906-07. Car number would be somewhere between 1 and 6600.

Re: [Non-DoD Source] Re: [EXT] [RealSTMFC] REDEMPTION

Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Very interesting, Steve!

 

I wonder why the big difference between those years.  Just randomness?

 

The presence of two 65’ gons is telling.  PRR tended to jealously guard these cars to serve the structural steel trade.

Going through 2 Conductor’s Records books (1300 cars each) from the ATSF, Mid Kansas

 

1923: 5 PRR Box cars

                11 PRR gondolas

 

1930: 9 PRR Box cars

                1 PRR Autobox

                2 PRR 65’ steel drop end gondolas.

 

So that is about 1 PRR in 100 cars in those locations.

George, any chance of sharing this as a true “attachment” so it could be opened at a size where it’s legible?

Bruce is certainly correct! The PRR had 227,881 freight cars service in 1942 (see attached for all railroads from the SRHA archives), no other road comes close. PRR cars would have been everywhere.

Re: Unknown STMFC on a flat car

The majority of such cars appear to have had unequal sized doors - Usually the left hand
door is smaller than the right hand door. The Northern Pacific had cars with equal size doors
but this car doesn't exactly match those either.

Probably not Rock Island.  The RI cars had fewer diagonal panels to the right of the doors and did not have the large blank panel above the end ribs.

Hi List Members,
