Mick describes the kit as being very similar to Quality Craft's O-scale version of this car, except for the O-scale car has four castings for the cupola, whereas the Pennsy Mainline Models' S-scale version used scribed siding which the modeler had to cut to create the window openings. Since no S-scale version of the PRR trucks exists, Mick used a pair of American Models trucks on his model.

A small number of these models were available factory-painted and lettered with either freight-car brown or tuscan red. The majority were sold unpainted. Ninety models were made with the PRR antenna and ten models without. The main photo shows Bill Lane's model which required many hours to super-detail. Photo #2 was taken by Ed Kirstatter of Jack Sudimak's model, which shows the trainphone antenna and the gray-painted cupola.
