Earlier on the year there was a photo on this list of a WP flat car with a load of Birchfield boilers. A gentleman on the list alerted me to models of these boilers from a company called Multi Scale Digital. We exchanged several emails and I am afraid I have lost the contact.
I have obtained a little more information and I hope that he might contact me.

At first glance, this looks like a USRA gondola, but it isn't. Dreadnaught ends were developed later and the Frisco USRA coal gons were originally in the 85000-85999 series.
This car might be a USRA-derived clone that was built later in the 1920s with the dreadnaught ends, or an original car has been rebuilt with the dreadnaught ends and renumbered. I don't know enough about the Frisco freigh car fleet to make a definitive statement.
It occurred to me I never mentioned I have decals for the Birchfield boilers. Contact me at jerryglow at comcast dot net
