This spreadsheet is research courtesy of Ray Breyer who made it available due to our interest in Fowler and/or Dominion boxcars in TT. Ray is interested in Fowlers and has a fondness for TT, though he drew the line at making his own locos and models HO.

I hope it is handy as it shows the RRs who used single sheathed 36' boxcars in the transition era and it includes far more owners than I had thought rostered the cars.

Ray says he is still digging up data on both 36' and 40' Fowlers, there are probably more owners out there. It seems there were 'Fowler like' 40' cars built for the Illinois Central prior to the first 40' Fowler cars built on the patent, if I understand it aright.

I hope it is helpful.
