I don't want to burst your bubble, but the last 125 (as 2601-26125) of these cars in revenue service were in restricted bulk plaster duty from Gerlach, Nevada, to where I don't know. There were only 24 left by 1958. I have never seen a photo of one of these running in California during their later years, except when they were returned to Sacramento or Oakland for scrapping as your photo shows. Of course, a handful were in MW service, though usually with extra windows and such.
I have a set of those resin castings and someday I will build them up, though I don't know how I would use the car on my SN branch.

I agree with that, but let's not forget most of us model/collect 1940-1960.
