were over 400 of these cars built in various lots;
the largest quantity of cars were express cars built specifically for
this service in 1929 and numbered in a different series.
Some of the milk cars were rebuilt for express service but many of
them ran till the end of their days as milk cars.
As Armand points out the Rutland cars were were the same basic design.

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
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.

I asked this question on the PCL when this was posted there and
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.
