Pete Steinmetz asked:
"Is the Accurail car accurate for the CB&Q  XM-30?  It looks like the sides near the ends of the car have different spacing than the Accurail car.  Could be the angle of the prototype photos."

No.  The roof, ends, and underframe are different as well, and the prototype car is 4 in taller than the Accurail model.  Sunshine did a more accurate version as Kit 17.16.
