I have seen the difference between your artwork and the model from j p.

It works for me too. Not everyone can read the data at a rolling car. :wink:

Cars 172000 - 172499 were built in 1959-1960. Several sources mention that. The builder's photo of 172010 shows BLT.4.60.HV. Could it take them 3 years to build 400 cars?

I don't know. But I accept this period 1959-60. I had only the information from this picture. At the same time in 1960, they have rebuilt at Havelock the old series 170000-170499 (blt 1949).

Note the 'droop' in the re-painted "40000"

...and BTW: The color ACI label is also exact for this car.

I like the new train car because it's a Burlington hopper car and I like the color red.
