Arnold,

The car is sorta-kinda accurate. The sill is wrong (should arc-lip type) and it has a 9' door vs. 8' on the prototype. Otherwise, it is a pretty good stand-in for WP series 3011-3050. You should bookmark my WP freight car site: http://www.people.virginia.edu/~ggg9y/wp.html .


Kind regards,

I've replaced the couplers with Kadee #78 types,
but i will like to know the truck type of this car.
Any idea?
