The straight underframe part is the same as the Fowler kit underframes. There are a few extra parts.
Overall the main underframe casting is the same for the three different 36-foot Accurail boxcar kits. The centersill, cross member, and brake hardware parts are what varies between the straight and fishbelly centersill versions.

Was looking at the Accurail site, and considering ordering their 36’ floors and brake sprues to retrofit some non-Accurail Fowler cars I have. I had some questions about the parts. It isn’t entirely clear to me that the part #131 36’ straight underframe and detail set is the same part as used on their #1100 series Fowler cars. The listings are at: http://www.accurail.com/accurail/parts.htm.
Has anyone ordered the parts and able to answer whether they are the same or explain the differences?
Obviously, this is a project that will require some part modifications, so I’m not too fussy here. Just trying to avoid ordering the wrong stuff.
