Volume 9 of Railroad Prototype Cyclopedia has a very nice article on the wagon top boxcar and explains all the differences.

Can anyone help with identifying the differences between the designs of these cars? I'm in the process of correcting a botched modeling job on a pair of West Shore models of the M-53. The way that these cars were put together indicates that the guy didn't know about Duryea underframes, but by undoing much of what he had done I was able to make one of them into a passable M-53. I'd like to make the other into an M-15 with Youngstown doors, but lack info on the differences between them and their later clones. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Tony Wagner
