Re: Longevity and numbers of M&StL double sheathed boxcars

Mark, according to Gene Green the cars in question were ex-W&LE/NKP 36'
steel ctrsill box cars w/truss cars purchased used by the M&StL in 1938. The
# series was 26000 to 26418 even #'s, total of 210 cars. They lasted on the
RR until 1944. I am not aware of any models that match, and Gene does not
show any models for these cars in his recently updated M&StL model list.
