The N&W Class B-7 and B-7A were rebuilt from Class BS boxcars.  The B-7 was a 10' 0" IH with Chicago Cleveland Radial Roof, while the B-7A was a 10' 6" IH with Murphy panel roof. A lot of the cars in both classes eventually found their way to MofW service.

B-7

B-7A

IMHO these rebuilt boxcars would make an excellent "mini-kit" or kit in resin.  The ends are particularly neat.
