And Dennis, wasn't that roof panels mistake repeated on the original Proto 2000 50 foot car ?
Inexplicible mistake in both cases, assuming both of them had either photos or drawings to work from.

Another oddity that no one has mentioned is the 50' boxcar roofs all seem to be missing a panel, being 14 panels rather than the correct 15. The panels themselves should be the same width as those on the 40' car, but are not. I have no idea why. Dennis Storzek
