I am specifically interested in the old Roundhouse stock car with metal sides and the single-sheathed box car with metal truss and wood sides. Does anyone know if either have a prototype and if so, what?
I think these two truss castings are the same. I always used to think it was the ARA box car, but haven't really checked details or dimensions.
