Subject: Re: [DRGW] Standard gauge Stock cars

Dave pointed you to the roster info on the RGM&HS site, and although he is right that there have been no updates the only ones I would add to the stcock car page are that one of the old Walthers (ex Train Miniatures) cars is somewhat close to the composite end 39000-39099 and 39400-39499 series. The Athearn car is similar to the steel end 36400-36499 series, but the diagonal side members run in the wrong direction, forming a Howe truss instead of a Pratt truss.

For examples see here (scrol to bottom):

Car color was black for most of the 20th century (mineral red very early on in the 1900s and 1910s), never silver/orange. Service years are listed in the table.
