OK, I finally have to ask. What's a monad? Thanks in advance for educating me!

Based on photographs of each series I agree. Wood running
boards up to the 17999. Monad is centered. Another change
starting with the 18000 series is now has "Main Street of
the Northwest" under the Monad.

Schuyler and Group,

For a NP 1937 AAR box car the number series should be
15000-17999. Some cars were renumbered but that happened after
the cut off date for this list. The paint scheme is a
representation of an as built car (1940-1) and I have seen a photo
taken in the early 1950s of a car still in this scheme. However
the Monad on the right side of the car should be centered on the
middle side panel between the door and car end. On the model the
Monad is too close to the door. The cars had wood running boards
until scrapping or removal. Can't tell from the photo but the car
should have 8 rung ladders.

Hope this helps.
