This FULL COLOR book shows the details and weathering variations
of these cars as they exist today in Chama, NM on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. There are two single bladed flangers, OJ is in MOW Gray, OK is in
Freight Car Red, and OL one of the two double bladed flangers is gray as well.
Though originally built in the late 1880's as wooden framed flangers,
two were rebuilt in 1937 & the other in 1940 with steel frames
into their current configuration and these were used on the system.
During the time of the photography of this book they were undergoing maintenance and rebuilding/repainting by the C&TS or Friends of the C&TS.
OJ & OK were assigned to Gunnison until 1956. OJ was used mostly in the yards at Crested Butte, Floresta, and Anthracite. OK was used on the Black Canyon Line, Crested Butte & Baldwin Branches. OL was assigned to Salida until 1956 where it was used to keep Marshall & Poncha Passes clear as well as the Monarch Branch. In 1956 they all were reassigned to Alamosa and then sold in 1970 for service on the C&TS.
