The LS & BC ran from a zinc mine near La Salle,IL, west to Ladd, IL. Here the
NYC, CB&Q, MILW RD and LS&BC interchanged cars. The story, if I remember
correctly is the LS&BC arranged to buy 500 dilapidated 40' box cars from the
PC to be refurbished and placed into service. The PC instead delivered 500
brand new box cars to the LS&BC. Upon receipt no time was wasted in painting
over the PC markings and they were soon in interline service for the LS&BC.
That is until the accountants finally caught up with it.
