Randy;

 

How are they different from the ends EJ&E had on their 10’IH cars?  Or the B&LE cars?

 

And why have NONE of these been done as plastic kits?

 

Thanks!

The B&O M-56 cars were built in May ‘52 with 10-panel sides, 8’ 3/5/5 Youngstown doors (counting corrugations). They had diagonal panel roofs and Duryea underframes, Champion-Peacock handbrakes and US Gypsum running boards.

Eldon,

 

**** How are they different from the ends EJ&E had on their 10’IH cars?  Or the B&LE cars? ****

The EJ&E per Hawkins) had 500 10’ IH cars with IDN-2 ends, the ends in the original picture are IDN-1 ends.

 

**** And why have NONE of these been done as plastic kits? ****

Intermountain produces the IDN-1 ends for their 12 panel 10’ car. 

 

The also produce a thin/3/4 with a full rolling pin for that top corrugation on the 3-panel portion of the end.  I’ve yet to find uncover a 10’ prototype for that end.  

 

Best regards,
