Hi John,


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.
