65' AAR mill gon questions


Ted Culotta <tculotta@...>
 

Can anyone provide build info for the following:

L&N - 25100-25299 - built Pressed Steel Car Co., 1948 - what month(s) were they constructed?
NC&StL - 41000-41024 Class GB20 (I think) - who was the builder and what month(s) and year were they built?

Thank you.

Regards,
Ted Culotta

Can't help on this one; the L&N car diagram doesn't show months of
construction, only years, and I don't have a photo of a car in this
series on which a built date might be readable.

NC&StL - 41000-41024 Class GB20 (I think) - who was the builder and
what month(s) and year were they built?
Built 1-49 by the Pressed Steel Car Co., according to the NC&StL
diagram book.

Ted,
The 1948 Railway Age order list shows the cars as being ordered in
April 1948 and delivery beginning in December 1948. There's a pretty
good photo of 25145 in the L&N Color Guide Volume 1 by Steve Johnson.
The photo caption states 12-48 as the build date for this car,
