Re: Rib side box with 8' doors.

Denny Anspach <danspach@...>

After stating confidently that the HO model 40' long-rib side car that I held in my hot little hand had 4/4 ends, Ed Hawkins comments-

All of Milwaukee's early rib-side 40' box cars built from 1939 to
1944 had 5/5 Dreadnaught Ends.
Ed is of course correct, and although knowing better, I also cannot count :-[ . The ends of this wood ribside model boxcar indeed has 5/5 ends, not 4/4!

Now, the same question: Does anyone know whether or not this car replicates a real prototype?
