I'm sorry but I'm not quite sure I unerstood the question.

Dispatch Shops Inc (DSI). in East Rochested, NY, owned by the New York Central Railroad, made and modified railroad box cars.  Sometime between the 1920's and 1940's DSI developed a specific type of presses steel box car end.  It was called the "DSI END".  I am trying to find out, as close as possible, when this propritary "DSI END" was first developed by DSI.  Thanks
