I know that is one of the variations.  I suspect, for no good reason except I think I’ve seen a photo, the NH version is likely.

Schuyler;

 

Thanks for all that info!  I have a E&P model of that somewhere, but never painted.

 

The deck may be the giveaway…..

Elden, I recognize that car, at least the general design, as a GSC 58’ depressed center flat.  It could indeed have been an ERIE car, 7260-7265, rated at 125 tons, but other railroads had these as well: NH, LV, NYC, plus (based on the information provided in the brass model by E&P about 1989) also with some possible variations the list includes

UP 50000

B&O

AT&SF

MKT

MP
SLSF

ACL

IC

SOO
SCL

SR

ICG

C&EI

 

Variations include roller bearing trucks

 

Geez, I’ve had this model for 30 years and it’s not painted yet??

Claus, Group;

 

I dug through my pics in depth, and could not locate this car, but I think it is not NKP (hence the airbrushed out lettering), but another road (like Erie or NYC maybe) that had the even spaced axle six-wheel trucks, that cut-out above the trucks, and that GSC cast body with ribs on the transition from lower deck to upper decks.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks!
