Re: New Intermountain box car

Mike Brock <brockm@...>

Tim, you write:

Intermountain has announced a "new" box car kit - 10 panel,
10'6", 4/4 ends, 8-rung ladders. The first road name is CN
cars in numbers from 5262xx to 5269xx. According to an RMJ
article by Ed Hawkins, this covers cars built in 1948 by
CC&F and Eastern Car Co. (?). The ends on both types of cars
should be Improved DE Type 2 (shortened upper rib), while the
roofs should be Diagonal Panel. The picture on the web site
shows a car with a Rectangular Panel roof -- a major mistake
if that's how they are packaged!!
"Say it ain't so, Joe!" Not another goof. Which issue of RMJ, Tim?
