many thanks for that link. Yes, all questions have been answered (most important, that the model - unfortunately - won't match my needs.)

I still need more 40' box cars, and I consider purchasing this one:
The following link provides history & data on the B-50-25 box cars that began in 1939 as UP 9100-9199. RP CYC Volumes 6 and 8 also provide information & photos. In addition the UPHS has published articles in The Streamliner on UP express box cars.
This data should provide sufficient information to answer all or most of your questions. Suggest coming back with specific questions you may still have after reviewing the link.
