Re: MONON box cars
This car is from Monon series 1200-1299 built in April 1948. They had Murphy diagonal panel roofs. They had two 8ft doors with a clear opening of 15'-10". The Monon Society offers Branchline kits of these cars.
Scale Model Kits
The cars were renumbered early into three different series that had load restraints:
1301-1320, left door welded shut, Evans DF restraints.
1401-1480, left door welded shut, (4) Evans DF Bars
1481, Webster Loaders
Later the 1401 series was further re-numbered into various 1500 number series with various Evans restraints. It always amazes me that they welded the second door shut so soon. It was a mystery for a long time which cars these were because the diagrams only show one door.
