The GSC flats were done in brass many years ago. I have two of those and they're really nice. I don't recall who� the builder or importer was. It would be n eat to see them done in plastic. The C of G had 5 of them, they were all assembled in their shops basically from kits

E&P did some of them in brass -- there are detail differences between
prototypes -- the decks could be wood, steel, or a combination, and some
had built-in tie down devices while some did not. Also early trucks were
plain bearing while some later cars received roller bearings.

The E&P models are beautiful. They fetch high prices now -- saw a NYC
model go for $353 (unpainted!) on Ebay last November.
