Re: Modeling Those WLE SS cars w/7-ft doors

How different were they from the PM cars?  Those have been on my long term list of possible projects, ever sense I found a bunch of wreck photos of them.


If anyone has the outline dimensions of the ends, it is a simple matter to draw and print them.  But I find such projects stall without a key outline dimension to work from.

I found one in a B&O Brunswick yard photo, circa 1922-23. The ends aren’t visible but the car side and door stand out among the other boxcars.

Seems to me these cars fall into the sweet spot for many modelers time wise in revenue service.
