Thanks Roger - A great resource no doubt, though a little difficult for me as a CPR west coast modeller to justify the $90. price. But I'll have to consider it. . . .

So I've had a little off-line help with this project and can now correct my
earlier comments about the drop end doors: these cars did have drop end

Now I'm preparing some drawings for a model and wonder about a dimension.
The inside length is 50' on this car. I don't have a dimension for the
thickness of the drop doors. I could simply borrow a dimension from the P2K
model, but wondering if there is a better way of estimating the dimension.

I'm going to have a look at the some Cyc drawings from the era and see what
I can find, but thought I'd ask here too.
