The car with Creco doors was as they were originally built over a period of ten years from 1924 to 1934. They had an 8.5-foot interior height, and came with KD brakes and Carmer cut levers. A total of 18,000 of those were built, in five different road number series. Starting in 1932 the cars were being equipped with AB brakes, which was completed on almost all cars by the late 1940s to early 1950s. Note that some cars with the Creco doors remained in service until the 1960s. Other railroads used this same car design, so Des Plaines Hobbies has decals available for those as well.
