Scott, the N&W Archives at Virginia Tech has drawings for this car.


This car is nowhere close to the KATY car to my eye. F&C offers the Virginian car as a kit and it is pretty good. I would however suggest ripping the Hutchins roof from an Accurail SS body, and narrow it to fit the F&C flat kit version of the kit. I believe the ends on the Virginian car are unique to it.
