Hi Max,

The DL&W didn't have any of the 1932 cars, sorry. It had plenty of the
Westerfield USRA NYC steel cars with the dreadnaught ends, though, which are
correct for your era. Lop off a couple of bolster rivets and reverse a two
pairs of crossbearers and it's a dead ringer, ready for the CDS decals. In
the 1930s, rather than buying new cars, the DL&W was putting steel sides on
the wooden boxcars.

All the best, ....Mike
