Re: MDC 50' double door single sheethed

Actually, the July 1995 article in Railmodel Journal covered only these cars without end doors. One year later, in the July 1996 issue of the same magazine, was the article about end door versions, also written by Richard Hendrickson, and also still available from the publisher.

Hello gentlemen:

I came across a few undecorated MDC 50' double door single sheethed
auto end boxcars in my to-do box. Someone mentioned that they are
correct for the Western Pacific and possible the T&P. Can anyone tell
me if they are prototypically correct for any other road? More
specifically, with paint schemes from the late 1940s. Any help would be
greatly appreciated. Thank you.
With minor modifications, they're correct for WP and T&P and, with
additional modifications, for MoPac. See my article in the July, 1995
Railmodel Journal.
