Re: W&R NP roundroof 4 door auto boxcar

It has long been established protocol by many modelers to identify box cars by the number of doors PER SIDE, not total count of both sides. 2 door cars are also frequently called "double door' cars. We all understand the other side of the boxcar is most often identical to the viewed side. The car in question is not a 4 door car.

From someone who thinks "roof walk" is a fine term.

The NP auto boxcar that I asked information for decals is also a PRR X31. This is NOT a war emergency car. I would like to find decals to letter this car NP as these were purchased from the PRR I believe. Robert Deis
