5th Avenue Car Shops/Accurail CB&Q XM-30 Boxcar

David North

I have a 5th Avenue Car Shops decorated Accurail 40’ Wood Boxcar kit.

The road number is 26528.

Can anyone point me to an article on this series in any of the popular hobby magazines, please – or photos?

I particularly want to determine the style of stirrups and the design of the center sill.

The instruction suggest the underframe should be straight rather than a fishbelly.

Also want to confirm if that is correct.

Thanks in advance for any help.
