Unfortunately, there aren't that many "Pratt truss"
8 ft 7 in IH prototypes (B&M/MTC, L&N, SAL), and none
with Dreadnaught ends or 13-carline roofs. You can use
this model as a stand-in for the B&M/MTC, L&N and SAL
cars, but be advised that roof and ends do not match
these prototypes.
To the untrained eye (such as mine), how can a person identify the Weaver Models boxcar as 8'-7" IH?
