I am pretty sure Sunshine did a model of the NKP car. Also notice the car to it’s right is an SP GS gondola.

Bob,

40' end-door auto cars were not all that common, though certainly not rare. I'm not an NKP maven, but I would suggest from the side sill treatment and the fishbelly underframe that this car is a rebuilt single-sheathed car. Perhaps someone else can confirm this.

Look at the car number though: 4321!

Yours Aye,

Was this an uncommon design?
