Re: Viking roof for Branchline AAR 1937 boxcar.

Tim O'Connor

In the case of Intermountain, I think that roof would fit both the 10-0 AAR car body and their 10-6 AAR car body as well.
IRC's prewar 10-0 and 10-6 10-panel prewar bodies also have separate ends, so they are excellent kitbash material for many
roof and end variations.

I put a Des Plaines Viking roof on an Intermountain box car worked great.

I just picked up a Branchline Yardmaster 1937 AAR boxcar lettered for C&O #4444. My friend the late Paul Winters loved fun numbered cars & he photographed this car back in the day. 

The car has nice lettering but it should have a Viking roof rather than the Murphy that is on this car. 

Has anyone in the group put a Viking roof on a Branchline car? I have some IMWX cars with Viking roofs but don't know if that part will fit the Branchline car.
