Re: IC green and yellow refrigerators

I can't say whether it is or isn't, but everything I see in the photos is consistent with the original aluminum IC 51000. The extended sill, the extended tabs at the bolsters, the locations of the various tack boards, the fan plate, end type, ladders and handholds, all are the same. For those who care, it was built in 1946. It was built with a Duryea underframe, ASF A-3 Ride Control trucks, Morton running board and brake step.

I do have two photos of the McComb car, had to bracket the car because of the closeness to the track.  I agree they're useless for paint, but perhaps interesting for detail.  This car has extended sidesill reinforcements, six-rung ladders and round-corner ends.  It's numbered 51000, so I'm not sure how it relates to the cars discussed here.

     The real 51000 was an aluminum car. Could this possibly, actually, be that car?
