The IM roof is basically correct, but not as well executed as the Red Caboose version.

Thank you, John.  I don't mind tweaking ladders, brake reservoir, even adding a Royal F brake regulator as long as the main parts of the car—sides, end, and roof—are correct.  If they have the correct W-section curved corners, and 5/5 dreadnaught ends, I might compromise on the roof.  Your comment about Red Caboose suggests that the IM car does NOT have the correct raised panel roof.

Sure appreciate the information, John.
