Mike: It's been noted on the MFCL (a.k.a. Post-Steam-Era FreightCars
List) that the angle of the side sills on the Athearn model isn't
quite structurally correct for the CB&Q prototype. It's noticeable if
you take a close look. This aside does not take away from your point
that Athearn's first run bypassed accurate early paint schemes.
