Re: PRR/B&O box cars
For B&O, I would suggest a modernized M-53 wagontop with a Youngstowntoggle quoted message Show quoted text
door, there are several resin kits. Also a Red Caboose M-26 (Pennsy X-
29). The M-26B variation is a PRR clone right down to the rivets,
start with a Pennsy decorated car.
Two B&O cars to avoid:
The M-15K wagontops were rebuilt enmasse during 1954-55 and
disappeared. Currently, the manufacturers offer the M-15K but none of
the post-1955 rebuilds.
Red Caboose recently offered cars decorated for class M-26E in the
billboard "B&O" scheme. Paint looks good, but the real M-26E's had
Duryea underframes, a substantial appearance flaw for that model. Red
Caboose is not tooled for any Duryea underframes.
