FAIL. This model has 5/5/5 Murphy ends and XLA roof,
indicating an early rebuild reusing these components that did
not increase the dimensions of the original car.
Unfortunately, none of these rebuilds (ACL/C&WC, SL-SF)
had 10-panel sides, but exhibited 8-panel sides. Also, the
model lacks an inset side sill and brackets that are a
spotting feature of almost all rebuilt boxcars. This, along
with the Atlas "Rebuilt USRA boxcar" model, is an overpriced
representation of nothing.
