Another so called wrecked car was a C&NW 40' box which had the roof
burned off by sparks from a V&T loco. They bought the car and re
roofed it. It is a storage shed today behind the Carson City museum.

Rio Grande models did a kit of this box #1015 in HO scale.


Can you relay more prototype details about this kit?

Does the kit represent the original roof?
What C&NW number was this car from?
Are decals also available to letter a C&NW version?

Just trying to enlarge the 1926 freight car fleet.

And as an aside, since Rio Grande Models has so many great period
vehicles available to use in scenes with steam era freight cars, the
National Pike Steam, Gas, and Horse show is this weekend near
Brownsville, PA. If you are in the greater Pittsburgh area, it's a
fabulous way to spend a sunny afternoon.
