Re: Candidates for Accurail cars

Allan Smith

The Accurail 7100 kit would be a good start for a CB&Q 26000 class boxcar, it is 9'4" IH while the 28000 is 10' IH. Accurail has two car numbers in the 26000 series. These cars had Murphy raised panel roofs and 4-5 dreadnaught ends, six panel sides,  SEE RPC 31-32 Page 65-67.

I was just browsing through the "Classic Freight Cars" 40' box car books. I found some candidates that might work using Accurail cars.
CN 573500-574699 really cool double door car. Would like to know a little about the proto, like what roof it had?
CB&Q 28000-28599 Looks shorter and not sure of the roof?
LNE 8001-8750 again the roof is not easy to identify
GB&W 6000-6298 I can see if these cars had fishbelly underframes, ends and door, but the roofs car a mystery.

Thanks for any help given. Would like to turn my Accurail SS kits into something useable on the layout.
