Re: MILW double-sheathed box cars


The 1/43 ORER gives the series as MILW 500000-502954, 795 cars. The 1/53 ORER shows a single car left: MILW 502055. There's a photo of MILW 500219 in Krause and Crist's NYO&W book, p 95, in a Middletown & Unionville train.

Awhile back I dug through a lot of material to identify a group

I can find is a note (intended as a pointer to the full note sheet)
saying that these were MILW 500000 to about 502000. Can anyone confirm
if these are the right cars? And if not, what were they?
