Gene Green asked:
"Does the P2K gon replicate any of these cars?
PRR-342600-344499-GB-52'6" Stl, Drop Ends, Flat Bottom G28
PRR-344500-348999-GB-52'6" All Stl, Drop Ends, Flat Bottom G27

Negative on the two PRR classes. The G27 is available from Sunshine - see
Elden Gatwood's article on modeling these cars in the May 2004 issue of The
Keystone Modeler:

Additionally, plans of this car appeared in the October 1998 issue of RMC.

No resin kit exists for the G28; however, you can kitbash this car from the
Revell/Con-Cor gon. The side sill profile needs to be corrected (the rivets
will need to be replaced) and the ends reworked. This conversion will
appear in TKM as part of Elden's gon series.
