moved to Willow FL.

Jeff, Jim,

M-53 and subclasses had the Duryea underframes.

M-15K used the original underframe from the cars they were rebult

Without looking up the details, I'm not sure if the M-15k had
underframes. They were rebuilds of pre-WWOne cars, so their
underframes, even if equipped with Duryea, were completely
from the M-53. The most visible difference was the appearance of
side sills.
