As I remember, I do not think that the P-2000 Mather boxcars have the Z diagonal bracing, just angles. Also, I am not sure that they match the correct height for all the roads that they model. Different roads had different height cars. Pictured are two Sunshine Mather boxcars that I built some years ago. I did not find them any more difficult than building other Sunshine boxcar kits.
