The only accurate model of any of the M55 cars is the Sunshine resin versions and even these did not get the Duryea underframes correct.

What model are you using for these? The plastic models for these have all been inaccurate in one respect or another?

Allen Cain asked:
"Would the B&O Sentinel Fast Freight Boxcars have travelled off the B&O line or were these in captive service on the B&O?"

They travelled off line.  See post #175868 by Andy Carlson for a photo of one taken in Taylor Yard in LA c. 1958.

Additionally, Ken Braden maintains a web page listing known photos of these cars.
