Don Valentine asked:
"In closing it appears I need to take another look at the Atlas USRA rebuilds. Anyone know of a good book to suggest?"
 
No single source yet.  RP Cyc 24 for the double-sheathed rebuilds; Martin Lofton's overview articles in the September and October 1989 issues of Railroad Model Craftsman, many other articles by Martin in the early 1990s in Model Railroading and Railmodel Journal (author search at http://index.mrmag.com/ will turn these up). See also spreadsheets summarizing DS and SS boxcars in the group files section compiled by myself and Larry Kline.
