FWIW, the following lists of the most numerous box/auto/vent cars not modeled in resin or plastic: (1950 ORER #s)Terrific list, Mike! A couple of comments:
CNW 60000 series USRA clone rebuild. 1,009 cars. 6th most numerous house car on CNW.Um, I'm a little doubtful that car groups this far down the list all need to be done--except of course for modelers of those roads.
PRR X38, 50ft steel, 14'-6" doors, 10'-8"IH. 2,299 cars, 14th most numerous house car on PRR.DIdn't these cars have two different roofs? If so, it's misleading to lump them all together--and 14th most numerous doesn't shout a "call of action" to me <g>.
