These are the only notes I have (besides what is in the spreadsheet from If you find out about the A/G running boards please
let us know!

CNW 71000-74398 -- Mineral Red Sides, Ends & Roof; Black U/F & Trucks,
"Route of the 400" on both sides

How about the 71000 - 71998 series? These 500 PS cars also seem to have had a mix of Apex and Gypsum running boards. The subsequent ACF cars had one or the other. Also, these and the cars through 77414
had an inside height of 10'-5". Was this one inch shortage account the Viking roof?
