Dates:10/14/2009 - 12/31/2020
Album Info:Rolling stock with road numbers starting with 10 to 19 - Boxcars, Reefers, Auto Carriers, Cement Wagons, Coil Steel Wagons, Bulkhead Flats and Covered Hoppers. Since the two sides of all wagon types are different, I treated the side on which the vacuum pipes are mounted, or where this was not practical, the side on which the brake wheel is mounted to the left of centre, as Side B. Further, since they describe brake systems and not wagon types, I left out the letters D, L, R, V and J in the wagon letter codes. Where applicable, the various complete letter codes and new class numbers for each wagon are included in brackets in the descriptions. The meaning of these omitted letters follow below.

D in position 2, 3 or 4: Dual Power Vacuum Brakes.

L in position 2, 3 or 4: Air Brakes.

R in position 2, 3 or 4: Dual Power Air Brakes.

V in position 3 or 4: Vacuum Brakes.

J in position 2, 3 or 4: Vacuum Brakes with Rejection Lugs on Brake Shoes.

Also, since many of the Class SC autoracks and Class ST pulpwood wagons were reclassified over the years, I found it more practical and less confusing to sort them according to their numbers and their original as delivered class numbers.

Data Sources: Transnet Index and Diagrams of Goods Vehicles, Part I, Open and Covered Wagons, Ref S/RM(WV) 15/8/5/5, Issued 91/07/30 and Transnet Index and Diagrams of Goods Vehicles, Part II, Tank Wagons, Ref CXG 6/4/2/3, Issued 1985/04/01. Dimensional data last edited and updated on 11 June 2009.
