Hello,

A Pressed Steel fishbelly underframe would make a good flat car.

Apparently that's what the C&S thought. According to the AFE, "with an additional outlay [beyond what was paid to the PRR for the depreciated value of the car] of $99.00 for decking, side stake pockets, and the application of same, we can have a 38'6" 100M capacity, all-steel flat car that will be of a great of service to us . . ."
