Re: GTW 11/2 door Single sheathed boxcar--segue to CN steel auto box cars...

CN Lines Vol. 6/4 has a couple of photos of interest. One is of CV

It clearly shows the use of a "Dreadnaught" 3/3/3 end on this car.

The article in CN Lines also has a builder's photo of GTW 34620, built
by AC&F in 1920/21. It was a steel-frame car, built with "Murphy" 7/8
ends. An Accurail car might be a starting point for this car?

But, while we're on the subject of auto box cars, any suggestions for
modelling this one??
