Re: URTX 35521 was MDT reefer
There's an article in the September, 2001 Railmodel Journal whichtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
shows how Stan Rydarowicz kitbashed one of the 1936 style cars. The
article has some good photos of an M&StL and a CMStP&P car from this
original series. The car marked for the Milwaukee is not identified by
number and there aren't enough of the markings showing through the
grime to pull the number from the photo.
Moving forward to the series which includes URTX 35521: the bit
of this later series car that shows up on the photo has double columns
of rivets at each sidewall panel joint, like a PFE R-40-10, etc. Also,
the bolster is "Tabbed" like an AAR box car. There isn't enough
showing that I can see the door, so I can't see the hinges. However,
from the rivet patterns, the tabs, and Ted's description of the
hinges on the later cars, would the side panels (including the door
hardware) from an Intermountain R-40-10/20/23 be correct?
