Go back and read my last post - NYC (links and photo provided previously) and DL&W.  Also IC.  Do something about that side sill and those too-shallow hoppers.

Frankly, you're better off using the Ulrich offset triple, which is actually an excellent model of a B&LE 90-ton car.  [It differs from the other cars by having more side posts (visible in the offset).]
