I found all three classes of Duryea box cars coupled together in the background of a Santa Fe photo documenting the Ft-N modified to carry B-29 wings in the CSRM collection. Three increasing heights, distinctive tabs and wearing the Grand Canyon slogan on the Bx-26 and 27 with the SL map on the Bx-34. The photo was taken August 12, 1943. Close enough to May that others were likely repainted by then.

1. I acquired a box car (It looks like an IM model.) It is lettered for Santa Fe with a herald on the left, and a straight line map on the right. It has a 7-panel door and a Bx-27 designation. It has 4/5 ends. In my Santa Fe box car book there are photos of the Bx-27 but with corrugated doors but without the map. If I replaced the 7-panel door with a corrugated one with the right number of corrugations and deftly removed the map would this model work as a stand-in at least for the Bx-27?
2. I have a Micro-Scale set 87-840 Hazardous Materials Placards. Are these placards correct for my May 1943 modeling era?
