Railway Prototype Cyclopedia Volume 4 AAR box car lettering Frt car trucks Reefe. Railway Prototype Cyclopedia Volume 4. Pages 1-34 The author discusses the A. Requirements for box car lettering and how the railroads followed those standards (or deviated from them). Shown are box cars of all types, including 40' and 50', single and double sheathed wood side cars, all-steel cars, single door and automobile box cars.

In addition to details about capacity and dimensional data, this article provides numerous photos displaying monograms and slogans that were stenciled on box cars. Examples of high-speed trucks, heavy-duty trucks, and caboose trucks are also shown. The article presents a roster of the cars and a substantial number of NWX prototype photos as well as the associated Western Refrigerator Line (Green Bay and Western). Many of the NWX cars were originally built with "billboard" lettering and were rolling advertisements for various dairy and poultry companies located in the upper Midwest.

Accurate scale models of the prototype cars are available from Westerfield in HO scale. Pages 71-85 Phosphate Covered Hopper Cars During the early 1930s, the Seaboard Air Line developed a new covered hopper design for the transport of phosphate rock.

This article provides prototype information and photographs on these unique covered hopper cars.

Roster information is also provided as well as a sample diagram. Pages 86-96 1935 AAR 50 ton hopper cars The series is continued with 50- and 60-ton cars of the A.
