Another possible series is ERIE 97400-97499..The attached photo isn’t included in that range.  Again, the diagram’s roof looks nothing like a rectangular panel roof.


Most ERIE end door cars were 50’.  When I saw Pierre’s “40 foot” I thought “I don’t think so, but . . .”


Further search in ERIE materials, from me, will have to wait ‘til tomorrow.  Busy tonight.

Erie? Just a wild guess.

This is Bill Clouser built model of a 40’ DD (12’ opening) auto boxcar with an end door. I can’t for the life of me find a prototype for this car. Any ideas? Raised panel roof, 7/7 ladders wooden running boards...
