Jason and Ed,
Please note the following details regarding the Katy flat cars mentioned.
M-K-T 13501-13525 (2-52 by M-K-T) - These cars were General Steel Casting frames. I would use a GSC model
for this particular car.
M-K-T 13701-13725 (4-54 by AC&F) - This car would be close with the exception of the Katy prototype having
16 stake pockets (according to the equipment diagram) instead of 15. There are a few minor detail differences.
