Richard’s article has a list of 42’ USRA Design Flat Cars and closely Similar Cars. He shows the 496000-496299 as 42’1”. The 489500+ series were 40’10”.

Paul:

My notes indicate that NYC 498000-489499 were only 40-0 over end sills and had 11 stake pockets.

I think it is the 496000-496299 series that is closest to the Red Caboose model (42-1 OL, 12 pockets).  498500-498999 was sort of in between:  40-10 OL, 12 pockets.
