Re: SP A-50-15 (was MoPac 50' AAR boxcar)

Tony did you replace the ends ? If so whose ends did you use ? And whose doors ?

SP rarely if ever used the Branchline panel patterns on 50 foot cars. The best fodder for those
cars is the old Front Range, later McKean, now Accurail 50 foot riveted double door car. Also
FR (now Accurail) made a 50 foot single door riveted car that is good for SP and MP cars,

´╗┐Upon further review, the Branchline body is incorrect. It gas a 5-8 pattern. The Proto 2000 is the correct 4-6. If you want to get to a rivet counter mode, you would need Archer Rivets AR88030 to correct the rivet pattern.
