Speaking of which, has anyone seen a good roof shot of C&O 4500-4999?
Larry Smith said they had Murphy roofs, not Vikings, but I've never
seen proof either way.

My copy of C&O's 1960 Freight Car Diagrams notes that these cars had
"Hutchins Dry Lading 15 Ga." roofs, Youngstown doors, Dreadnaught ends, Ajax
brake wheel and wood running board.

Steve, what kind of roof is that? Like the C&O 7000-series cars had?
For our intents it is a Murphy roof, by another name (vendor).
