**** How are they different from the ends EJ&E had on their 10’IH cars?  Or the B&LE cars? ****

The EJ&E per Hawkins) had 500 10’ IH cars with IDN-2 ends, the ends in the original picture are IDN-1 ends.


**** And why have NONE of these been done as plastic kits? ****

Intermountain produces the IDN-1 ends for their 12 panel 10’ car. 


The also produce a thin/3/4 with a full rolling pin for that top corrugation on the 3-panel portion of the end.  I’ve yet to find uncover a 10’ prototype for that end.
