What makes it even more confusing is that in the mid-fifties, the TP welded steel plate behind the door to replace the wood siding on many single-sheathed cars of this type (after converting them to single door cars). However, these had the rounded numerals in the reporting marks.

Someone a long time ago must have decided that the best way to model or
create a characterization of the real car was to use "V" groove material. I
guess the hobby has to live with this inaccurate convention.
Many modelers don't seem to know that it is wrong. Ignorance is bliss.

What, no wood grain? Where are the horizontal grooves so nicely replicated
