Fellas,

Is there a standard distance between these cars?  If not, what would be typical?

TIA

Are you talking about the steam era, prior to cars being equipped with those long "cushioned underframe" draftgear assemblies?

Yes, 1940’s to be more specific.  I’m not sure that there is a standard like EMD F units, 3’ between units.
