I guess it comes down to are we trying to describe the 1944 standard
specifically or post war in general. If the former, then the roof "style"
isn't a spotting feature whereas if we're talking about the later term it
works fairly well -- not perfect, but well.
Going back to the '44 standard boxcar, I'd be looking for 40' length, ends
"more modern" than 5/5 dreadnaught, AND not a PS-1. Again, not perfect but
it serves me fairly well.
