Re: Red Caboose 40ft double door CB&Q boxcar
Well gee !!! Another off-shelf-bogus car. Since it's not accurate for CB&Q I can just put one of each door and remain bogus with it, but don't show it to anyone. All of us probably have inaccurate cars on our layouts. Nice looking model though.
Thanks everyone for the info.

What was missed here is that the two 10' IH double-door boxcars from RC have only two prototypes (per Richard Hendrickson). The square-corner car is only good for Soo, and the W-corner is good only for SAL. Everything else is bogus. By the time these 10'
IH cars were produced, the unofficial standard for auto cars was 10' 4" or 10' 6".
