Mainline Modeler October 2004: CP 55525-56024

Patrick Lawson's article "Canadian Pacific Railway Box Car 55525-56024" in
the October 2004 issue of Mainline Modeler states that these cars were built
in 1938. However, this date or the car series is most certainly in error,
as these cars are described as having 4/4 Improved Dreadnaught ends and
diagonal panel roofs. The drawing accompanying the article shows a 10 ft 6
in car with R+3/4 early Improved Dreadnaught ends, diagonal panel roof, and
7 ft Youngstown door. The photos accompanying the article are of CP 57622
and 59112, cars outside of the quoted series with NSC ends.

What's the real story with this series of CP cars? For a two page article,
it's confusing as hell.
