So, it will not be too wrong to use either wooden or metal roofwalks, as I prefer, for the 1950s?

either would be ok but it would be very odd to see all wood by that period. hence why an etch is needed.

For any time period after the mid 1930s or so, you want a mix of wood and metal.

As always, best to check photos! :)

BTW, Marquette, we need a list of railroads - operators of 1937 AAR boxcars! :) (like you did for the Fowler and USRA boxcars...) :roll:

Okay, I can do that.

There was the standard 1937 car, and the Modified 1937 design. I'll do the list only for the standard car, as the Modified 1937 design was 6" higher on the inside. I'll go through the Mod 1937 cars too, and if I see any that are visually very similar (say, within 3") to the standard design, I'll add those separately.

For each car series, I will list the type of trucks, roof, doors, roofwalks and ends, as these could vary. I will /not/ differentiate between square-corner and W-corner 4/5 Dreadnaught ends, as the visual difference between these is minimal at 1:120.

Give me a few days, though! :)

OK I have discussed this issue with a couple of small manufacturers. I have tried to focus on those in the US as they are more accessible to most of you. I will update on what eventuates.
