These models only had fins on their ends. Manufacturer ID "SWRI-7" is for one car; "SWLE-7" is for two such cars; "SWLE-8" contained one each of SWRI-6 and SWRI-7. The fins were original in 1936, but were removed in later years. As per the prototype, the brake system at the cars' ends were different between the two models as well (see Photo #4). There is a product review in the October 1990 issue of the 3/16 "S"cale Railroading magazine. The models were made by Duck Yoo Corp of Korea, and arrived unpainted (covered in a clear, semi-gloss lacquer). At the time, River Raisin Models provided appropriate decals for the three known prototype lettering schemes.
