Re: S Helper Service "Rebuilt Boxcar"

First, the side sills are incorrect for any SS or DS rebuild - there is
no noticeable inset, and the brackets are actually closer to those used
on Pennsy Class X29 rebuilds than anything used on an SS or DS rebuild.
There were some clone rebuilds that had flush sills, Wabash comes to
mind. Also, RF&P's lone s/s rebuild had flush sills. As for the brackets,
some rebuilds used a t-shaped piece rather than a triangular cast bracket.
