These kits were modified versions of earlier Northeastern Scale Models kits (the latter had 9 panels vs. 7 panels). The model shown in the main photo was built by Dick Karnes, who used Northeastern's Andrews trucks which were included with the kit. He used Champ decals, and HO-scale Kadee couplers. Photo #2 is of Jack Troxell's version.

Also produced as SHS #01832 (road number 187498). These models have wood doors. The second photo of SHS #00071 (road number 167051), by Ed Kirstatter, is labeled as class M-24, but the number assigned to this model was really of a class M-24D which were converted by the B&O in 1950-51 to an auto parts car to carry Chevrolet rear axles. These models have corrugated doors. Note also that for these models SHS used the wrong font on the lettering giving an incorrect type of ampersand.

Circle Keystone scheme. Also produced as SHS #01840 (road number 45319, see second photo by Holt Apgar), SHS #00066 (road number 564281), and SHS #00067 (road number 518392). Note that for the second run of these cars (the 018xx numbers), the first letter "N" was missing in the road name. The first run (the 0006x numbers) did not have this problem. According to Don Thompson, the issue was that the font in the digital drawings put the letter too close to the vertical brace, which then caused the factory's equipment to not apply the letter. Unfortunately, it was not caught during quality-control. C-D-S decal set #S-310 provides a letter "N" that is a close match.

This is based on a 1925 model of an XM-1 single-sheathed, outside-braced car. The kit consists of a urethane body with a wooden floor. No trucks or couplers were included with the kit. Alvin added underbody details, Northeastern Scale trucks, and Kadee #5 couplers. He painted it box-car red and added the W&LE decals.
