Hi Bill,

The only combination door PS-1s that I know of are Milwaukee Road
29000-29499, 500 cars built in 1958. There is a photo of the side of
MILW 29000 on the pay side of the RPI website (don't know if it will
work):

Unfortunately, the ends aren't visible.

I picked up a McKean combination plug and sliding door welded side
40'
PS-1. The car has the 5-4-1 riveted ends with 6 vertical
corrugations
at the end roof peak. Anybody have any ideas as to who the prototype
owner was? Also any idea about who makes a suitable replacement
floor?
