It's much worse than that.  The model is a Pratt truss SS boxcar and nothing like any USRA SS boxcar.  They're better off calling it a "1920s single sheathed boxcar" or some other BS description.

As I posted earlier, don't make reservations for these models.  Far more deserving models died due to lack of reservations than these pieces of excrement.
