Re: Accurail single sheathed box cars (was CNJ 12000 series)

     I’m uncertain about the direction of your present build photographed with the Hutchins roof and 7/8 ends. If you are planning on modeling a CNJ 18XXX series of single sheath cars, they had a 7/7 end. The 17XXX had a wood sheath end with vertical stiffners. Some of these early 40’ S/S wood cars ended up on the New Jersey Zinc plants railline in Palmerton PA.
