Ken, the Ga-94 hatches are spaced farther appart. The end hatches are over the bolster chanels so on the Santa Fe this car would be a Ga-90 class ONLY.

am assuming from my little bit of research (perhaps the term is
"guessing") that the PS2s are of the Ga-90 and Ga-94 classes. Do these
models fill any other classes?

As Ed Hawkins stated, the Athearn has the offset hatches, it is good for the
GA-94 class (ATSF) only. The Walthers car with the late hat section above the
trucks would be good for the GA-116 class (ATSF) cars.

The GA-90 class had evenly spaced hatches.
