UP Frt Conductor Book Data


Tim O'Connor <timoconnor@...>
 

the book contains data on 35 UP trains between Laramie and Rawlins
[ to the west ], WY, over about a month and a half...Mar ...to ...
April ... 1949.
Very interesting to see so many off-line hoppers at that time. It
makes me wonder if UP's receipt of a large order of 70 ton hoppers
(the H-70-1 class) in 1949 had the effect of sending most of those
hoppers back to their owners.... Certainly pictures of coal trains
in the 1950's show many H-70-1's and not much else.
