Tim, Any chance you could scan those pics for me? I don't have that book. Todd

The C of G cars in that number series (6300-6999) were delivered in 3 separate

lots between 1941 and 1945.

The CofG 1 1/2 door cars were series 6300-6999.



There's a fine 1958 color photo of CG #6658 in the front end sheet

of the book "West From Omaha" that shows the original paint scheme,

heavily weathered.



In the same book, on page 173, is a 1953 shot of single door CG #4589

in the Nancy Hanks repaint scheme. The car has a Superior door.

I am pulling together the parts to build a C of G door and 1/2 40 foot boxcar. I
am trying to determine if the lettering set from Greg Komar with the "Billboard"
lettering (for lack of a better term) is correct for 1950? I have no preference
for this lettering set I am really just looking to use the most prevalent scheme
for 1950.
As for doors I am going to see if I can get a set of Red Caboose doors from
their 40 foot double door boxcar and then just cut down the left hand door as
this will allow me to use the cast on door hardware.
Everything else looks very straight forward.
