Re: Riveted Plate Ends - was RDG/ Southern box car questions


 

Another missing detail part needed in HO. I am planning on making a Reading XMu and BXMu and would like to know if anyone makes them. Those Reading boxes fit in with the current discussion.

Ed,

Reading XMt box cars 100000 - 100499 had 7/8 corrugated ends. XMt's
100500 - 100999 had riveted plate ends.

The new RPC is terrific with many photos I've never seen before.

Did RDG box cars series 100500 have riveted plate ends or 7/8 Murphy ends?
The new RPC says Murphy (p.92). Ted's spiral bound box car reference
manual says riveted ("X29") ends (p.129).

(I have the utmost respect for the gentlemen connected with both
publications).

Were the ends of the taller RDG USRA steel box cars (101000-102999)
identical to the ends of the flat ended Seaboard & NC&StL box cars? The
sides must have had significantly different river patterns, right? Was
there ever a Red Ball kit for these cars? I think there was a cast end.

Did the AHM door box car have the Murphy solid steel roof that most of
these USRA steel box had? How close were these models to Southern's double
door, ds box cars?
