Re: WofA war emergency box car
RP CYC 19 covered these cars and included photos of WofA 17464. Here's the kicker the WofA cars were 10'-0" IH whereas, the IM car models the 10'-6" car. Not sure if that is a deal breaker for you. But if it is not, you want a copy of RPC 19.

Subject: [STMFC] WofA war emergency box car
If I have my facts straight, WofA 17423, series 17400-17464, was a WII war emergency box car. On hand is an Intermountain undecorated war emergency box car kit.
My questions are:
Is there a decal source? If no, the remaining questions are moot.
What basic color? I'm not fanatical about exact colors.
Is there a source for a photo? Might be hard to letter otherwise.
Are the basic Intermountain (replaceable) features – roof, door, trucks, hand brake - correct for the WofA car?
Would the WofA war emergency box cars still have had wood sides in 1950?
