Re: Tuscarora Almanac for August 23

The R-32 was definitely a better operating car from the M/M’s standpoint. I braked faster and smoother than the R-38s and newer cars despite the fact that the R-38s through 42s had an “improved” version of the SMEE catalogued by WABCO as RT-2. I don’t know if the change in braking systems would have impacted on the R-38s if they had been built by Budd instead of St Louis but the cars definitely would have lasted longer and would probably still be with us.
