Modeling Notes:

Details West model - Replace car sides with Athearn 50' insulated box car sides and add a new door using the 9' Camel door from Intermountain 50' PS-1 box car. Refer to Staffan Ehnbom article in Mainline Modeler. The forthcoming Branchline Trains model appears to be correct based on what I have read.  I will update this page after the model has been released.
