Bill,

You mean the car with the brakeman riding the side ladder, coupled to RI 79609? My interpretation of that is that the car has a very weathered double board roof, with most of the paint worn off the flat surfaces of the roof sheathing boards and running boards. I think the remaining paint in the grooves of the boards is causing an optical illusion of corrugations.

The NP car to the right is offered as a kit from Yarmouth Model Works.
