Martin did the B&O M-27 versions with the Tatum roof also with a very
thick casting for the roof. When I build mine I intend to scratch build
the roof per the article in Railroad Model Craftsman by Bob Chapman
using a Red Caboose ARA roof casting as the starting point. It seems
that the model will be top heavy and not track well using the thick roof
casting. I would be interested in learning from those that have
assembled these two kits if they had any problems actually operating
these models.
