I'm very surprised that you would consider 8 foot door cars, but
not the 7 foot door cars.
The New Haven had a large number of these cars - they would be
very important to STMFC
northeastern modelers, and probably of some interest to most
other STMFC class 1 modelers.
And if you ever did the 10 foot inside height cars, that would
be manna from heaven!! :-D
The New Haven also had a large number of these cars, and many
ended their lives working
for other railroads (i.e. more paint schemes).

a pretty good list that Ben Hom gave us.
6 ft - ATSF, CGW, CIL, CMO, CNW,
COPR, CP, DSS&A, KCS, LS&BC, MKT, NYC, P&WV,
7 ft - B&M, LV, MEC, NH
8 ft - SAL, SL-SF, SOU
they do meet our standards and we’ve produced a few of these
cars already, mostly sold out though. We may or may not do the
8 ft door cars. There are a number of paint schemes and roads
we can now do that we could not do before because the cars
were pre 1950 cars. The pre-1950 cars have quite a number of
transitioning details that are quite different than the cars
built after 1950. See Ed Hawkins info as he has helped us way
beyond just a thank you.
planning a few more this coming year, no I can’t tell you what
roads or when.
