Why is that relevant? The IHB cars had W-corner ends for both
types of car.

I didn't follow that exactly -- what do you mean by
"earlier design" for the 730-B ?
The 729-B's were the 10-0 cars
The 730-B's were the 10-6 cars
You're right the 729 is IMWX/RedCaboose/Branchline and the
730 is the Intermountain. ( Or Athearn :-D )
The two sizes of the AAR design cars were built
concurrently in the 1930's and 1940's.

not...but why use the Branchline model as a starting
point? What's wrong with the Intermountain 10 ft 6 in
IH Modified 1937 AAR Boxcar model? Despite the 1944
build date, IHB 10600-10699 (Lot 730-B) were built to
the earlier design. See Ed Hawkins' spreadsheet for
