[GaRRHistory] GA RR Box Cars To Hacks
Donnie Hensley <taplines@...>
I have a diagram book from 1952. The 19300-19449 series were built in 1924 by TCI RR Co. and were AAR type XM. The diagram states that these cars were being converted and rebuilt to 29300-29449 series box cars. The GA RR used no class names, only series numbers. I have the diagram of the box cars. These wooden box cars were being rebuilt with new steel framing, steel sheathing to replace the wooden sheathing, new steel running boards to replace the old wooden boards, new hand brakes, new AB brake system and new type c or d auto couplers. About the only thing to stay was the Murphy Steel Roof and the Steel ends.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
However it appears that the cabooses in question were created in 1931, Caboose #s 2835 to 2849 or 14 cabooses. They do indeed have the same length as these box cars.
