Ray,
Do you mean 1200 Series Ore Cars built by Koppel Industrial Car & Equipment Co. in Koppel, PA or are you referring to ore cars built by Koppel of Germany? If US car information is what you seek, check out this site: http://nn.railfan.net/Ingoldsby/gold4.htm and scroll down to the 1200 series for descriptions and photographs. Also check out Chapter 6 of the photo gallery further down.
Also, you might check out the Rail Driver Car Builders Cyclopedia to see if your ore car is on the list. These cyclopedias contain builders drawings.

About the Koppel ore car at the Adirondack Museum: it is missing the journals that the axles rode in. The car frame is sitting directly on the ends of the axles!

Sandy,

Are you sure? I was up mthere a few years ago and don't remember anything that major missing??? They were pretty simple journals, not much to them. CI if I remember correctly, maybe bearings inside the CI. I assume there may be many of those scattered in the Adirondacks.

Where on the Shores of Ontario are you??? I'm in Rochester.

Jack
