I need some help on a starting point to build a couple of NYC express cars which were converted from USRA steel side rebuilds.
As Andy already indicated, Sunshine makes the kit. However, they were not from USRA box cars. They were rebuilds of '1916' double sheathed auto cars (Westerfield makes kits for these original cars.) They were renumbered from Lot 664-B and equipped with Symington high speed trucks. Lot 664-B was rebuilt into steel cars from the original auto cars in 1936-7 from cars in Lots 327-9, 352, 357-8, 361, 363-6.
