No car typifies the Pere Marquette Railroad's fleet than the 50-foot double-door steel automobile car. The dust jacket cover photograph is of PM No. 72000, an example built by the Greenville Steel Car Company in 1940. This car was equipped with a Duryea cushion underframe and a perforated steel interior lining for auto parts shipments.
More than boxcars is covered in this volume, the Pere Marquette fleet included the same mix of freight cars as found on other large railroads, stock cars, flat cars, gondolas and hopper cars.
