Ron Rudnick's DSP&P Rolling Stock Rosters

Extracts of rolling stock rosters from varios years containwd in Ron Rudnick's "DSP&P Modeling Guide" are shown below. Ron's exhaustive research, sharp deductive skills, and immaculate draftsmanship combine to make his Modeling Guide a "must have" item for any DSP&P fan or modeler.

The first order for rolling stock on the DSP&P went out in 1874 for 30 flat cars, 5 box cars, 5 coal cars, a coach, a combine, and 6 excursion cars. This initial batch of cars plus 2 small locomotives were sufficient for construction and revenue service for the next four years. Further construction brought the flat car count up to around 100, and these were also probably used as coal cars or ballast cars when needed. Subsequent orders over the next 10 years brought the total fleet of freight cars up to about 1300. The passener car fleet reached about 40 cars of various kinds -- many survived until the C&S era.
