Indeed, according to Ed Hawkins' and Ted Culotta's list all four blocks of the D&H cars had welded sides. These were built by the D&H itself, the first block at Oneonta and the remainder at Green Island. They all had 4-5 Dreadnaught ends, which Atlas never tooled. They didn't belong on the list I submitted, and this will be been corrected shortly.
Atlas body style 2 is more or less correct for Seaboard, and this was the car used by John Golden and Justin May in their March 2009 SEABOARD COAST LINE MODELER article. They note that the roof has flat panels with rivet detail, but lacks the lap seams. I don't know what lettering did on production runs of this car. Are you saying they offered Seaboard lettering on the Style 1 body?
The only Atlas models I every bought were WM (lacking a Duryea underframe) and I-GN, both Style 1 bodies. My hobby dealer retired and went out of business about the time the decorated Style 2 was produced, and I never saw any Seaboard cars.
