Outside of the cars brought over from P2K Walthers hasn’t been relevant for steam era revenue freight cars for the 21 century.

      Possibly the most offensive of these cars is the claimed "USRA" single-sheathed car. The prototype had three diagonal braces on each side of the door, where the Walthers model has two, mirroring the 1924 ARA design, not the USRA. C'mon, Walthers, get a grip. It's not remotely anything like the prototype you claim.
