1937 AAR, 40-foot, 10-foot inside-height, round corners. Available in two road numbers. Bill bought the model shown in the photograph "used", but apparently the original builder took the time to make the doors positionable, which is not a feature the PRS kits offered. The trucks on the model are by American Models, and the couplers are Kadee S-scale 802. PRS part number B-411 offered two of these cars in a set.
