Bob;

I have not found the correspondence on this one yet. There were several experiments on X31 class cars over the years, particularly on roofs. I am pretty sure most of the roof experiments were to look into curing the leaky roof problem they had with lap seam roofs like the X29's and X31's had, but I still need to find the proof. There was even a removable roof version of the X31. Some experiments resulted in groups of cars in special service (like coil shipment), I will let you know when I find more.

Another one from Hagley. I don't recall ever seeing a PRR round roof with reinforcing panels.

Does anyone have additional information?
