Re: And the R-179 contract goes to....

True, but that was only in terms of the physical dimensions of the cars. SIRT cars had to meet ICC (pre FRA) standards which the BMT cars did not so there was no perceived need for compatibility. The H & M, on the other hand built their Newark extension cars to the identical specs as the MP-38s which were the PRR cars with which they did have to run so both of those classes were fully compatible.
