Re: Refrigerated Railcars

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
did a little googling aound.....................

I would have guessed between 4.5 feet based on a couple of visits to a rail yard  but I wouldn''t bet lunch on it.  It was about mid-chest height & rather difficult to boost oneself onto a flat surface w/o help

here's an org that probably has the best info

here are some car dims but the original web page is gone, this is the result of a Google cache

here's is a TM from the DOD
