Re: CofG ventilated boxcars


Bill, do you have dates for when this roof change took place? There's information that says that the roof was replaced on these cars but no specific dates can be found. I appreciate the constructive criticism on the kit. The Central of Georgia Railway Historical Society's goal is to be as accurate as possible on a project of this type. Do you, or anyone else know if a drawing exist for the Murphy roof as applied to these cars? It's highly possible that if the information can be located that a future run of these cars could incorporate the changes discussed here. Thanks for your help. Todd Horton

Although the built up model of this new kit looks to be of high
quality, those of us modeling the post WWII era will not want it unless
we are willing to overlook the fact that these cars were rebuilt by
this time with a Hutchins roof. The model has the Murphy XLA roof that
many cars built in the same era had.
