Re: red caboose 1937 aar sq corner

Years ago, Des Planes Hobbies had IMWX do a special run of the square end 1937 boxcar with a specially-commissioned Viking roof. They did several roads, including a NKP car (I still have one kicking around my stash of cars). I believe that the deep "fishbelly" under the door was original to the NKP car... maybe someone else can give more information regarding as to who else used this arrangement.

Subject: [STMFC] red caboose 1937 aar sq corner
Purchased two of these and found the Nickle Plate had something similar
The sill is interesting and wonder if they were built or this is a modification.
Already have an Erie kit with this body and a viking roof, would like to make the two different roadnames.
Will miss Naperville so you all Have Fun.
