Re: Proto 50' boxcar roof removal

O Fenton Wells

If you want to make a 10 IH car out of a P2K just make a cut throught the
top rib, at least with the SR cars that gave me the 4/5 end I needed. I'm
attaching a picture of the A end of the SR 10 IH and the sides of the 50
footer I did. I built new sides using Archer rivets at the seams.
I am dong a clinic on these at the Savannah RPM Meeting in March.
Let me know if I can help.
Regards, Fenton

Except for the double rivet seams, the P2K cars match the 87100

of Tom Madden's roof castings for mine, it turned out well.

10-6 IH, D-5/5, YSD-4/5/5/4 doors, double rivet-row.

The lower end corners do not match the P2K and neither of the
NKP series featured the push-pockets as exists on the P2K cars.
Also, the P2K cars are inteded to be a 10-6 IH design.

Again, it comes down to the accuracy that is acceptable to you.
