Roof Rebuilds


Guy Wilber
 

Since the NYC cars are being discussed, does anyone know a "rough" date of
when the Nickle Plate ARA 1932 cars had their Hutchins Radial roofs replaced
with all steel Murphy roofs. And, were these diagonal panel or the
rectangular type?

Guy, my notes say they were rebuilt ca 1954 with diagonal panel roofs.
