I picked up an Intermountain kit lettered for Illinois Central lease, with the reporting marks NRC 16337, being fully aware that I would have to change something.
The MDT book shows these cars as lot 881, NRC 16000-16499, in common with MDT 11500-11999. There are a couple of photos of the MDT series in the book, and I found one of another NRC series on rr-fallenflags
with a couple of the photos of this exact series being missing.
My question is, can it be confirmed that cars in this 16000-16499 series be confirmed as having Despatch 3-5 ends? And, do these cars also have Despatch roof?
