The assumption so far is that this car has a prototype. Until a picture is posted submitting potential roads is premature. How do we know that it isn't a brass version of a "generic" 50' boxcar. The car is older and prototype fidelity wasn't as critical back then.You're absolutely right, Brian, but I think the goal was to find out if there are reasonably close prototypes, even if no exact match. But: as we've been discussing, there may not even be any, if the wood running board is retained.
