Apex is right I was looking at 87000-87099. They had Viking roofs and wood running boards. 

87100-87199 had Viking roofs and apex. 

I posted the NKP freight diagrams here previously.

Thanks Brian.

As the car body and roof are cast as one piece, how would you recommend removing the roof?  Razor saw?  My assumption would be that a Dremel would do a lot of collateral damage.

Also, did the running boards get swapped at some point?  The Protocraft link you supplied says the cars had Apex Tri-Lok.
