Builders' Lot Lists


Jeff English
 

From time to time several contributors to this list will quote
citations from a Lot List for one or more of the historical car
builders. My question is how does one go about acquiring one's
own copy of such lists, rather than relying on random mentions on
this list. For which builders are there known to be lists available?
Obvious desirable builders' lists would include Pullman, ACF,
PSC, SSC, Haskell & Barker, Magor, Mt. Vernon, etc. I'd love to
find one for MDT/Despatch Shops, but I think that one is unlikely.

Jeff - Years ago I brought a portable copier into the ACF archives at St.
Charles and copied the lot list up through about 1955. I've made copies of
the list at cost for about half a dozen persons. Ed Kaminski has a copy of
the complete list. However, his is missing a column indicating the
existence of a builder's photo; mine has that.

Someone does have a copy of the Pullman lot list - however, each lot is on a
separate sheet so the stack is many feet high. I know of no others.

I would be glad to post any such lists, either as scanned in jpeg files or
text files, on the rpi site for all to share. - John
