Now that we have beaten to death what the Standard Railway Equipment Co called itself , does anyone know whether the Rr-47s were really built with rectangular panel roofs in 1951?

I am hoping so since I have a lot of them in my parts bin, but have been waiting for some time for an order of diagonal panel roofs from I/M.

And I'm not certain, but I think SRE is not to be confused
with USRE -- United States Railway Equipment -- which was a
rebuilder of freight cars during the 1960's (using the easily
recognized outline of the continental US as its builder logo)
