NS 166919 Steel Coil Flat.
Fostoria, Ohio 11-28-2012

I believe these cars are used to
hull steel coils and are 53 feet long.

Not sure what the number series are,
or when they were built. Any info is appreciated.

Thanks,

Blow up the photo and look into the white bordered black boxes on the right underframe and it will give you the build date.
