Re: 40' Autobox cars

I think C&BT produced single door cars

6, 7, 8 ft door openings
3 different ends -- 4/4 RP, R+3/4 RP, R+3/4 Taper
10 panel or 12 panel riveted
RP or DP roofs

for a total of 3 x 3 x 2 x 2 = 36 permutations

Many of them have no prototype.

For the double door cars I think there was only one
side pattern and a single choice of door width, so you
only have variations by roof and end choices.

" you know if there's a list of C&BT cars that have not been
duplicated and correct road info for those cars?"

The information has been posted on this list in dribs and drabs, but
nobody to my knowledge has compiled it into a list. It's certainly a
worthy projects, as it would help identify what's worth picking up or
what's worth keeping in the kit stash.
