Re: Accurail 36-foot double-sheathed boxcars
I didn't get the sense that Garth was dismissing the cars, just reporting on his research regarding survivors up to 1958. As someone who also models 1958 I was glad to see it. And I'm glad to see that the cars will be useful for your 1934 modeling, as I want to see Dennis be as successful as possible.

I am not sure I understand the point of (or perhaps the need for) your post. You model two years before the cutoff date for this group, so that fact that these 36 foot cars are not relevant to you is entirely predictable.
But the group is supposed to embrace the period 1900 to 1960. I model 1934 -- right in the middle. There are others (perhaps just a few) that model earlier. So, for some of us, these kits might be highly relevant (they are all, after all, SUF cars; many ran through the 1930s and beyond).
I would guess that 85% of the chatter on this site is of no use or interest to me because it deals with things that post-date my layout. I know how to deal with that fact: I make liberal use of the delete button. Everyone has the same "filtering" option.
