267pp. photo illustrated, The 1932 ARA standard box car heralded the era of standard freight cars designs and ranks as one of the few most important designs in history. While the number of cars constructed to the design was relatively small, its influence was far-reaching and its creation may be regarded as one of the landmark events in house car design. A fine copy save for neat owner's stamp to front free endpaper, bound in black cloth, spine lettering gilt, in fine unclipped pictorial dust jacket.
