Scott,
Short answer is no. Prior to production of the earliest PS-1 box cars in June 1947, earlier riveted-side box cars built by Pullman-Standard to AAR designs used a variety of roofs to include Murphy, Viking, and various versions of flat-panel riveted roofs.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Ed Hawkins

I think the welded PS-1 was always the standard. Some railroads wanted riveted sides.

Are you asking about the pre-1950 bow tie roof, or the 1950+ bow tie roof? Both are now
available from Tangent as detail parts.
