Thanks for these references Schuyler. This and the photos passed on by Richard will help bring the model together.   As I model 1946, the small diamond on this model will be fine I expect.

Nuts, I should have added that there is a diagram book in the Erie/EL/DL&W section that can define the group of cars you’re dealing with.

Thanks Clark,

 

Its confusing as the kit contains a narrow set of black ladders (i.e. for ends) and two sets of brown ladders – narrow and wide - (for the sides).  Also, the wide ladders are 7 rung instead of 8, so using wide would result in rungs on the side ladders not lining up with those on the end ladders.   I couldn’t find a prototype photo of this series.

We’ve always used the wider ladders on the sides and the narrower ones on the ends.
