Could you guys post them on the STMFC web site. I'd love to see the photos.
I did an HO stand in for a WHIX car from a TM/Walthers plug door car with an
IM Murphy roof. I did it from one photo in an old book called (I think)
"Freight Cars Rolling".

I have a Pacific Car & Foundry "builder's photo" of WHIX 70290, "NEW 9-53".
It shows the serif lettering and black side ladders, hardware and sidesill.

Brian, do you know who built the last group of cars? If you send me a scan
of 70290, I'll send you my scan of WHIX 70000 from the 1999 GN calendar. :-)
