Scans of the roof illustrations for the Hutchins Dry Lading and Murphy style freight car roofs would be extremely helpful as I do not have Car Builders' Cyclopedias.
My research has uncovered a marvelous photo of a scratchbuilt model of an single sheathed O-Scale/P:48 freight car with a Hutchins Dry Lading roof on an MKT model by Jim Zwernemann. Jim's model won 1st place in freight cars at the March O-Scale Show in Chicago. http://www.marchmeet.net/Pix/2013/2013_winners.shtml and http://www.shamokindivision.com/2013/03/21/2013-chicago-o-scale-show-the-model-contest/
Thanks, Dave Sarther

List Members,Dave, these are well illustrated in the Car Builders' Cyclopedias of that era. If you don't have access to them, I can scan them for you.
