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

Fritz Milhaupt

If anyone ever makes the PM style of these ends, I'm in for at least a dozen sets, since the PM had a thousand cars equipped with them, in the 85000-85999 series. Built as auto cars, they were converted to single-door cars between 1937 and 1943. The last ones were in service on the C&O until 1957.

We can add the Manistee & Northeastern to the list of owners, since they got at least a handful of them second-hand, after the single-door conversion.
