Re: ARA 1932 Matches for Atlas Body Styles

The Soo cars were a solid 5 inches wider (IW) than the 1932 standard. Does the Atlas body capture that, or are they 8-9 like the standard would call for?

Granted, that's a minor compromise.

Many of those cars were rebuilt with new roofs later - Murphy diagonal panels. If the Atlas body is a 8-9 IW, not sure how easy modelling that conversion would be. I suppose one could narrow a roof and hide the seam under the running boards.
