The great limitation to the use of en
closed cars has always been their
weight. It has been generally recog
nized that, were weight of enclosed
cars to he cut down to a point where
expense of operation and the effort of
control were on a basis comparable to
open cars, their utility would be so In
creased as to add much to their popu
larity. Not more than five vears ago the
great majority of enclosed cars weighed
between 5909 and 7999 pounds. Anyone
would have considered it purely vis
ionary at this time to have predicted
the possibility of the required !nxur
and convenience being producd in en
closed cars weighing under 3000
pounds. Even now the heavy weight
of the early das is not uncommon

3590 pounds as a minimum on which to
