Re: Santa Fe Accurail kits

I defer to Ed Hakins' superior knowledge both of the Accurail
triple hopper and the prototypes which it represents, whether
accurately or inaccurately. He concludes:

I have not yet found prototype photos of classes Ga-66 and Ga-77 to
verify the side and arrangement used on these cars (series
183000-183224 and 183425-183924).

I don't have good photos of these classes either, but it's clear from
the diagrams in the Santa Fe Freight Car Folio that they were
essentially the same as the other postwar Santa Fe three bay hoppers.
