Strange that an Fe 7 would have a more modern end than an Fe 8 with its inverted Murphy corrugated end. With so many rebuilds, perhaps I should not be surprised.

According to the Sunshine PDS there were four different types of ends applied to the various Fe-6 through Fe-20 rebuilds: inverted Murphy, inverted Dreadnought, inverted Murphy with stretcher panel, and inverted Dreadnought with stretcher panel. Again according to the PDS, they were often intermixed although all the photos in the ATSF Furniture and Automobile Box Cars book show all the "B" ends had stretcher panels. Frank has  patterns for the Murphy ends and may release a kit with those ends.
