Thanks to Ed and all those that replied. I suspected that they were
different but did not have enough info to make a decision.

Ed,
The BT model will represent the AC&F welded-side cars, series REX
6100-6599,
built in 1947 and early 1948. This model will also represent the ACL
3000-3049 series. The Walthers model will (reportedly) represent
riveted-side
cars built by General American, series 6900-7399 (built 1955) and
7400-7899
(built 1957). Information and photos of these cars and many other express
refrigerator cars will be presented in the forthcoming Railway Prototype
Cyclopedia Vol. 7, planned for release this spring. Page layout work is
ongoing with printing planned next month. Details to follow as the
printing
completion date nears.
