NP 81280 is an NP design, see the arch roof.  It is not a Mather stockcar, which NP did lease.

Here is NP 81280 as seen in June 1973, which is fairly late in this car's life as well as the NP's livestock transportation era.


Is this car the prototype used for the Central Valley flat cast HO scale kit?
