Re: Photos: NYC Boxcar 256241 (1926)


This is ACF lot 6421 and there a bunch of builder’s photos on the Westerfield ACF CD. Comparing the photos shows straps added not only around the ends, but also a beefed up siding protector beneath the door, a large door stop added and also an extended roof fascia board. All would be quite easy to add to the Accurail car as Dennis mentions.

This is essentially the Accurail 1700 series boxcar showing the extra straps the NYC added to reinforce the ends.
