L&N 9800-series furniture boxcars, roof design?

D. Scott Chatfield

A friend is scratchbuilding a model of an L&N 9800-series door-and-a-half boxcar. The roof design has him stumped. Since there appears to be 24 running board supports, I assume there are 24 carlines under what appears to be a smooth metal roof. Are there 24 roof sections? If so, what do the seams look like? Are they crimped together, or is there a very thin seam cap?

Outside of my expertise.
