Dave, on the CPR you'll be looking for cars 289640-289999, which were constructed from 1936-1942, on CNR you need 209500-209799, built from 1939-1943.

Thank-you very much for the info. The '43 ORER lists 359 CP cars that match the number range. The description does not mention 8 hatches, but it does specify overhead ice containers, and the inside length is only 2'5" less than the outside length (no end bunkers). CN lists 200 cars with the same size and notations.

GTW does not list any similar cars, so these look to be pretty rare during WWII.

Thanks to all for the info,
Dave Evans
