Clarification – The TC prototypes were 8’ 6” IH, taller than the what the P2K cars represent, which are 7’8” IH cars, if I recall correctly.

Proto 2000 produced the Mather boxcar decorated for Tennessee Central, but the TC prototypes were the taller version. Sunshine produced the taller and correct TC model.
I seem to recall hearing that the P2K Mather boxcars were based off their Mather stock car, thus the boxcar models were of the lower height version.

Big surprise here, folks: proto2000 only made one height of Mather car.
