Hi Doug and Steve and List Members,
Doug's photo shows the car AESX 22 closest to the
camera. The Fallen Flags web site has an image of AESX 23 - the next car in

on-line photos is whether the end sill of the kit has the trapezoid shaped end
sill. The hand rail across the tank ends are a notable feature.
