Re: Answer For Mr. Dave Klepper's Question, Is It An R-10 or #1575?

It was done at the A.C.F. plant in Berwick, Pennsylvania. The wrecked R-7 original car body was sent to them, and came back with the new one from the factory, but still with the AMUE hardware and equipment.

When it was completed there in Berwick, it sported its original white on black number plates from the previous design. However, when that car returned back to New York and eventually to 207th Street Yard with the new body, it now received those new orange on grey number plates. As seen from his own collection, railfan George Votova photographed that car at 207th Street Yard on 7/2/1947
