MDC 36 ft. double-sheathed boxcars are good for bunk house conversions,
either as single cars, or as two cars placed end-to-end. I've found
dimensions matching these boxcar bunkhouse configurations in CB&Q alignment
charts, and I've found photographs of them as well. I don't think I'd
sacrifice a resin kit, but MDC kits or RTR cars are great kitbashing
material. The resin kits can be turned into credible bunk cars.
