SP A-50-6

Hi Tom-:

Hope all is well with you. I just got home from the Collinsville meet.  It was the first time I traveled in over two years..

This car definitely lasted into the 50's-  I have (somewhere) a good drawing of thss car which I will forward..  I don't think that I have ever seen a photo of this car without K brakes.  Excellent decals were done by Ted Culotta (Now from the guy in Canada) and Protocraft.  Ted also covered rhe car in one of his Essential Freight Car articles.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] SP A50-6

Hi all,

I am building an F&C kit 6560 SP A50-6. No information about the prototype in the kit. I looked to see if I could find these cars in my 7/50 ORER. It was not obvious if they are there. So my questions:

Were these running in 7/50?
Did some have K brakes (provided with the kit)?
What were the series of numbers for the cars?

TIA for any assistance.
