Santa Fe Bx-34, -37, and -43 Class 1937 A.A.R. Modified Standard Box Cars. The article is the eleventh in a series covering American box car designs that were built during the first half of the 20th century.

The article includes the latest information pertaining to the billboard stenciling applied to these cars. The article includes 1 table, 6 diagrams, and 46 prototype photographs.

Included are many photographs obtained since Volumes 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, and 13 were published. The previously-named “A.A.R. alternate standard” hopper cars are discussed and assigned their more appropriate name of “A.M.C.

Several newly obtained diagrams amply illustrate the many design differences apparent in the various cars. The article includes 11 tables, 24 diagrams, and 112 prototype photographs. more»

World War II Emergency Composite Hopper Cars (79 pages) by Patrick C. Wider

The article continues the series on the emergency composite freight cars built during World War II in an effort to reduce the industry's dependency on the critically short materials needed for the weapons of war. Included are 50- and 70-ton emergency composite hopper cars built to A.A.R. and several proprietary designs, side-dump ballast cars of similar composite designs, and the various postwar all-steel rebuilds. Ultimately, 11 car builders and railroad shops built a total of 19,772, 50- and 70-ton emergency composite hopper and ballast cars during the wartime period. Of these, 11,675, 50-ton composite hopper cars were built for 15 railroads based upon the A.A.R. emergency composite twin hopper design, and 2,625, 70-ton composite hopper cars were built for six railroads based upon the A.A.R. emergency composite triple hopper design. In addition, 4,472 non-standard, 50-ton composite hopper and ballast cars were built to various proprietary designs for six railroads during the wartime period. The article includes 111 photographs, 28 diagrams, and three rosters.
