ex-NH boxcars

Does anyone know what type of roofs the rebuilt ex-NH box cars the ACY got from United States Railway. These are the Yellow billboard ACY box cars. I think they might have Murphey roofs , but are possibly the Pullman - Standard "bow - tie " type. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks WBG.

Re: Last remaining AC&Y boxcar in original paint(?)

I don't think this is the original paint scheme . The big sliding door on the ACY's plug doors didn't have any of the lettering on it. Can you e-mail me a copy of this picture. My e-mail is - wadegriffi@aol.net . Where is the Steam Roundhouse? Looks like it might be a good place to visit.

Re: ACY yellow box cars

Thanks for the replies. I have a question of Mr. Kirstatter - which series of brown ACY box cars are you interested in? Are you looking at steel cars or wooden ones. I am interested in developing any ACY sets I can get information on. My biggest need is accurate photos to develop letters and numbers...

I have seen all different shades used on commerical models. The Athearn car has a fairly dark red . The Accurail car has a very bright alm...
