And here's a link to the article - from the April 1993 issue of RMJ on the TrainLife website:

Although the CV had a number of 1-1/2 door single sheathed boxcars, (see , they looked nothing like the Accurail car. 

GTW had some 1-1/2 door cars identical to (in some cases former) the CV 41,000-series cars.

In addition, GTW rostered some cars that one could model with the Accurail boxcar and the NERS door kit. In a past issue of RMJ there's an article showing how to use the NERS doors to modify the Accurail car. 

Hope this helps,

I picked up some NERS door conversion kits at a train show and want to do the conversion on some Accurail kits I have. The kits are like all the NERS products I have and are well designed and made. Their instruction sheet mentions CN and CP so I'm assuming the CV and GTW may have had some too. Does anyone know of any other railroads using this type car? I did the Google and Bing searches and come up with no pictures or usable info. Any help would be appreciated
