Re: New York Central 765-B

Just for interest I will throw out another idea. Kadee has offered
accurate models of NYC PS-1 box cars including their catalogue number
4057 (Lot 842-B with 5-panel Superior doors) and 4079 (Lot 808-B with
Youngstown doors). Both of these are sold out at Kadee, but you might
be able to locate one somewhere or wait for a future release that Kadee
will no doubt offer. These two models have black roofs and ends to
represent the car cement applied to new NYC PS-1 box cars built from
1950 to 1952. They also come with the correct hand brake and Apex
Tri-Lok running boards & brake steps.

These are the NYC models Ed mentioned, and a couple extras. As
Ed noted these are all PS-1 1950-1953 production.

If you can find it, try to get Kadee #4000, the undecorated "RTR"
PS-1. The early undec models came with 3 different pairs of doors
but I don't know if the newer "kit" (#4100) comes with extra doors.
