R-40-23 w/ diagonal panel roof?


jaley <jaley@...>
 

I recently purchased a factory assembled HO scale IM R-40-23.

I immediately noticed that the car has a diagonal panel roof. The car is
lettered as an R-40-23.

My first thought was that IM had accidentally put the wrong paint scheme
on an R-40-25 body, but the ends lack the extra top rib of the R-40-25.

My question: was there any such car (R-40-23 w/ diagonal panel roof)? I
could not find one in Thompson, Church & Jones' book.

I thought I'd double-check here before I contact IM to see if I can get a
replacement.

Thanks,

-Jeff
