Re: Atlanta & West Point rebuilt box cars


A&WP 37700-37833 were rebuilt between 1948-53 from Pratt-truss singled-sheathed boxcars dating from the twenties. They had five panels each side of the door and 7/8 "Murphy" ends, and were painted all BCR with white stencilling. This info comes from Sunshine PDS #64E; the kit is #64.78.

Can someone out there provide information on an Atlanta & West Point box car # 37702. I have a decal I purchased from Jerry Glow months ago and cannot recall what type of a box car it should be. The following seems accurate:

1. The box car was a rebuild. After that I still need to know:

1. How many panels on each side of the door, four or five?

2. What type of ends, dreadnaught?

3. 5/5/5 ends or something else?

4. Paint: All box car red or black roof, ends, or what?

Any help would be appreciated. You have been helpful many times before. That's one reason I really do appreciate this list.
