The early Kadee PS1 dates from the early 50s. But Kadee came out with another late 40s body last year. There was a great clinic on the differences at Collinsville two years ago by someone this list. Hopefully he will chime in.

I am not a PS1 expert by any stretch so wondering what version of PS1 the proto photo is of the in EBAY link below?  The DRGW historical site says it was PS1 built in 1948 if that helps.  Comparing the photo to the Kadee cars the Kadee cars have an extra smaller rib on top.  Is there an HO scale model that would be closer to the proto photo?  I would like to add one to my fleet.
