Subject: [DRGW] Rio Grande 62000-63499 series 36' box car photos

I=E2=80=99m trying to locate in service photos of the Rio Grande 62000-6349=
9 series 36' box cars. This is for an upcoming article on these cars. I h=
ave found a couple of photos by Richard Hendrickson who took them circa 193=
7. These are in the directions for the Sunshine kit of those cars. But th=
ey may be copyrighted and regardless were cropped too much. There is also o=
ne photo in Jim Eager=E2=80=99s book when one of the cars was converted to =
MOW service.

I=E2=80=99d sure appreciate it if someone can direct me to a source. The i=
deal era is just before WWII when there were over 1,400 of these cars still=
in service and after they had been rebuilt in 1926-8. Earlier pre-rebuilt=
photos of the cars would also be nice. Also a builder=E2=80=99s photo (the=
y were built in 1909 by American Car & Foundry.

Thanks in advance.
