General Information

The combined 3461 & 3469 instruction sheet is an updated version of the 3451 & 3459 Lumber and Dump car instructions. Because the 3461 and 3469 freight cars were extremely popular and produced for several years, their instructions are common and easy to locate.

Although these are common instructions, some dates are harder-to-find compared to others. The instructions dated 2/50 and 9/50 appear to be the most common. On the other hand, the instructions dated 4/50 and 1/54 are two of the more difficult ones to locate.

Finally, there are two interesting notes regarding the printing of the 2/53 (and later) instructions. First, the Service Department address was updated to their new Irvington NJ address. Secondly, the diagram on the bottom of page 2 was finally updated to reflect their current transformer line. The interesting part of the old diagram is it listed a type 'R' transformer -- last manufactured before the 3461 or 3469 were even produced!
