I'm looking for information on 1972 era ACF box car and I know was on the Rock Island roster, series 36000-36299. I haven't found a freight car photo web site that contains a photo of this car to link here. I don't know if there are other roads that this car and I don't know if any still exist somewhere.
They are 5265 cu.ft, plate C, exterior post car, 10' wide door opening, AAR type A-230.
I'm looking dimensions to help sketch this - end sheet width, height, post width, height, etc..

In the "ACF box car 1960-1981" book by Edward S. Kaminski there is an image of one of the cars on page 115 RI 36102. I have the CRIP diagram for when the car was renumbered to the ROCK series of 536000-536299 - if you're interested. The CUFT is listed as 5285 cuft. You may try and contact Nick Molo and see if he happens to have an image of one of the cars. Not sure if he does, but he does like AC&F cars.
