Re: CP model to fit a paint scheme

Doug Rhodes

Hello Clark

Here are some number series you might consider:

10 foot high cars (1937 design)

CP226000-228799 built 1937
CP248350-252249 built 1941-1946

10 foot 6 inch high cars (1944 modified design)

CP252250-267210 built 1948-1953

That last series had almost 15,000 cars in service in 1956, or about 28% of all CPR boxcars then in
service. So it might be a good choice for a "typical" boxcar based on the 1937 design. The other
series, with about 2700 and 3800 cars in service respectively, were also fairly numerous.

You guys have been helpful.

The minibox has been for done months, I used the decals that came with the kit. He's just getting
around to readying it for his layout.

What would be the number series' for standard AAR 37 of modified 37 cars?
