Hutchins Roofs


Bill Welch
 

I agree with Ed that the minor rib on Hutchins roofs are often exaggerated. Another point to remember is that on FGE./WFE/BRE cars rebuilt with this roof there is no such rib or really crease. My theory is that they purchased Hutchins parts but supplied their own steel panels. For those of you building the modernized Westerfield model of the ex-PRR R7 reefers, you need to remove the rib cast into the middle of the roof panels.
