F&C did the Buckeye end, but only on their Erie milk car. AFAIK, this car was also based on the ARA 1932 design. I have a pair of the milk cars which I bought to use on another layout concept, and due to changing interests never assembled. In comparison with the other two unassembled F&C 1932 boxcars I have in my pile, the ends seem to be a perfect match. I was planning on matching the boxcar sides to the Buckeye ends and Viking roof to do the Erie boxcar. I haven't figured out what to do with reefer sides (the door is too wide), so these would still end up as a freelanced car. (Sigh).
A moot point anyway, as most of my model railroad time is now devoted to O-scale British narrow gauge, the freelance Scottish Midlands Light Railway. Once I had seen and ridden behind those "Great Little Trains", they got under my skin, and Scotland, well, "tis thee hame o'mine ayne folk" (meaning my ancestors).
