Re: Atlas 1932 ARA Boxcar - Again

The C of G car is pretty close, the CGRHS worked with Atlas on the art work for this model. The "Streamlined Money Saver" paint was painted for about one year (52'-53') on various boxcars for the Central. There's a photo in one of the Trackside books showing one of these in this paint scheme (IIRC) in 61' North of Pottsville Pa. One thing I did see wrong is that the Atlas model has poling pockets, the CG cars did not have them.

Atlas says these are new paint schemes.

Are any of the cars prototypically accurate?
