This door is called a YSD-2A in Hawkins-speak, or a 5/5/4
(Ed counts the ribs instead of the panels). See Ed's article
in Railmodel Journal, October 1999. The article correctly
identifies the B-50-39 door, as well as the NC&StL, NS, and
GM&O (see correction) -- but not the GN cars! Here are some
more in his list.
ATSF Bx-63 (?)
GM&O 21000-21749 (21750-21999 had 7p Superior doors)
SOU 330000-330499 (NO&NE)
Branchline produced kits for the Southern 23000 cars but I
did not consult my references before building the kits so I
have the wrong doors on them.
