We do need more NYC cars,... What I'd love to see are the
rebuilds with new roofs etc. that were seen in the 50's and 60's.
In Richard's introduction to these NYC USRA clone box cars that he
wrote a few years ago, he stated that the NYC replaced the original
roofs with Murphy rectangular and after 1948 diagonal panel roofs.
Did the NYC retain the ZU-eave roof design on the rebuilt roofs?
