The last period of AC&F manufacturing of box cars was the years 1960-1981 and this volume provides both the history and extensive color photography, along with details of the car design and construction in this period. Many colorful paint schemes were in use by the railroads and lessors, large and small, and they are shown here, including many Incentive Per Diem schemes. A complete production roster of the box cars built is also provided. Coverage includes 40 foot as well as 50 foot inside post cars, 50 foot outside post cars, and 60 foot inside and outside post cars. Many of these 60 foot cars were built for auto parts service.
