Ed,
While the car shown in the ebay photos may have carried milk, the car was actually an Express reefer and occaisionaly showed up on the Fast Mail in ATSF territory.

Marty and group,The NYC and Rutland milk cars were essentially the same
car,with some minor refinements.Since the Rutland was under NYC 's control
many of the same designs were used including,locomotives ,rolling stock and
buildings.Armand Premo

Ed,

Years ago someone (F&C - or molded by F&C for someone else) did a
resin kit for the NYC cars you're referring to. I have no idea if
they're still available. I never built one, but remember Andy
Sperandeo had one and was underwhelmed by the quality of the kit in
general.

I noticed in the last Naperville flyer I received from Martin Lofton
that Sunshine's 2009 model year would include a milk car - I can't
remember the entire description (it was very brief) but I do know it
mentioned a "CV" milkcar. I can't find the flyer (we've just
moved) -- but I do know the way it was described (Rutland/CV
milkcar????) it sounded to me like a typo and it should have been
Rutland/NYC milkcar. Which, of course, would make sense and could
very well be the car you're looking for.

I'll look for the flyer this week - but perhaps someone else has a
copy a little closer to hand.

experts on this list so I'll ask again: does anyone know if there
is an HO model of this milk car. I ask because these cars show up
in the consist lists of the book "Ghost Trains of the SP", the book
on the Overland mail trains and I would like to have one of these
cars for my train.
