One Last X29 Question (I promise. Well, maybe...)


Is the Walthers X29 closer to the 1924 or 1928 build? In the absence of Red Caboose RC-7000 models (of the 1928 car), I'm looking for an easier way to model a 1928 version car than to kitbash the 1924 ends onto the 1932/1934 body (same 1928 sides, but with Dreadnaught ends).

Photos of the Walthers cars on-line aren't detailed enough to see the difference. Although all I've seen (were I can read the build date) show a build date prior to 1928, my hope is it's usable, and I won't have to resort to kitbashing the 1928 cars (or avoiding them in my fleet).
