Clark Propst asked:
"Have just built the other [Rensselaer] club kit I bought at the StL RPM, a DL&W DS steel end box car. The only info on the cars is a drawing showing number 45951.
Now the questions: What is the number series these cars are from? When the AB brakes were applied was a power hand brake added too? If so, what type? Around 1950 was any part of the car black? K4 sells a Lackawanna box car decal set. It contains a large LACKAWANNA. Did this cars get stenciled with this style?"

See Ted Culotta's Essential Freight Cars No. 12, ARA Double-Sheathed Box and Auto Cars, April 2005 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman.
