The Roma cars (G.A.T.X 944 and 985) I have seen pictures of were based upon a GATC design which differed from the Thomas design which appears to be similar to ACF six-dome cars. ACF did build a number of six-dome cars. There has not been any really accurate models done of the GATC cars. PSC imported them years ago in HO and O. They made a significant error in that the domes have a flanged base with rivets around the perimeter. The actual dome were insulated and mated with an insulated body. So the dome attachment point would be hidden.

While we are talking about Roma wine cars. I have an old metal car from years ago, with six domes. Is it a correct prototype?
