I'm in TT scale; if I were in HO, then my tolerance with regards to
details like that would be rather more strict. The model-to-come will be
developed using drawings and photos of PM cars, so they should be correct
for that and NYC, but overall, no, that's not an essential feature. Maybe
in ten years' time, though... technologies such as 3D printing have been a
great gift to TT, and I can only see the situation improving.
The NYC and PM series you mention both have the "sloped-stepped"
end-side-sheet taper. Is this an essential feature? To me in HO it would
be; but I've forgotten what scale you're in.

Wondering if anyone might be able to help me a bit... I'm trying to
determine what all could be modelled with a 3-bay offset-side hopper
visually like the NYC 904000-904999 or PM 15000-15249 series.
I already know of a number of such, but went through the ORER looking
other possible matches, and am curious if anyone can confirm or deny
these. I'm looking for cars that are visually similar - if it looks
at first glance, that's good enough - right number of panels, etc; minor
dimensional difference (within a foot) aren't important - I don't have
variety of available models you HO guys do, to let me be quite that
So the possibles I found...
CN 108600-109099, 109105-109954, 119000-119499
Louisiana & Arkansas 4400-4799
MP 61000-61999, 62000-62759
Ontario Northland 140300-140324
Thanks in advance!
