Notes:

  1. "Class" refers to AAR classification.
  2. SUF generally refers to a wood car rebuilt with a steel underframe.
  3. Builders:    OB-Osgood-Bradley of Worcester, Mass.
                        P-Pullman
                  ACF-American Car & Foundry
                        R-Rutland RR Shops
                   SSC-Standard Steel Car
  4. "1947" and "1953" refer to the existence of a particular car in the respective "Official Register of Passenger Car Equipment."  In some cases it is not possible to determine the existence of a particular car, only the number of cars in a series. For example, "2 of 4" refers to the fact that 2 cars out of a series of 4 cars still were on the roster at that time).
  5. Omissions and errors are inevitable.  Please send corrections and additions to Jim Dufour.

  1. Much of this information is from a list in the Fall, 1996 Rutland Newsliner supplied by Ray Muntz.  Some of these cars are not on the post-war roster above but survived due to conversion to work train service.  If you know the location of any existing ex-Rutland rolling stock or other equipment, please contact Jim Dufour.  Include the Rutland number, location, condition and any other data that would be of interest and we will add it to our lists.  Thanks!
  2. Thanks to Bill Badger, Jeff English, Scott Whitney, Glenn Annis and Rome Romano.
