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.

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
Variations include roller bearing trucks
Geez, I’ve had this model for 30 years and it’s not painted yet??
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?
