Re: LNE 1923 box cars A question about the roofs of these cars

Did Train Miniature by any chance tool a diagonal panel roof? Its cars were narrower than most and might be a source for a narrow roof, if they made one.

It’s been mentioned that the original roofs were replaced “in the 50s.”   Now I realize that was likely a lengthy process, but I’d like to know what the roof was in the early 50s, even the late 40s.
 
I bought a Red Caboose kit at a train show several years ago, and when I opened it a week or so ago, discovered that someone had filched the roof out of the box.  Only the roof, but without a roof . . .
 
Ted C told me he >might< have a replacement roof, though is upgrade/modernization kit is out of production.
 
If someone has a suitable roof they could provide, I’d be happy to acquire same.
 
Thanks
