....the onlyOkay, I will. The Santa Fe's Bx-48, Bx-50, and Bx-51 classes (a total of
2,500 cars) were all 12 panel AAR cars with rectangular panel roofs.
Diagonal panel roofs first appeared on the Bx-53 class in 1949. Though the
models have obvious shortcomings, C&BT kits for 12 panel cars with
rectangular panel roofs are the only way to accurately model the Bx-48
through Bx-50 classes.
