Thanks. Yes, I have the article and have collected photos of the cars. I just didn't get around to comparing the kits and photos yet.

Is the F&C kit accurate for the Southern's steel end version?  I made a lot of assumptions in the past when purchasing kits, and now, after a few months on this list, I'm questioning a lot more than I used to do.

Hi Dave
Yes - good to go - nice little kits and accurate and remarkably easy to build.  Scribing the insides and fitting weights to them is a bit of a challenge if you want empties, but that's about the worst thing I can say.
Do you have a copy of the article published in the old SHRS Southern Rails about 20-25 years ago?
