85' Flat Cars

I'm looking for photos or print references to the following Pullman Standard 85' flat cars:

C&O         81400-81449 PS 8-59 to TTX 479142-479191
D&RGW    21500-21508 PS 3-59
D&RGW    21509-21523 PS 6-59
FEC          2001-2020 PS 2-59
NAFX        100-111 PS 1-59
NAFX        112-236 PS 6-59
TLCX        100-199 PS 8=9-59
WM          851-860 PS 6-59
WP          1701-1725 PS 4-59
UP           53700-53799 PS 1=2-59 F-70-2, leased to PFE, returned

These cars should match the Trainworx 85' flat with drop-sill sides. I have access to builder shots of the NAFX cars.

Any help appreciated, thanks!

C&O and TLCX cars have changed to straight side sills, a design that continues into the early 1960s.

This load looks a lot like a certain Shapeways project seen in a recent weekend update thread: :)

Of course TTX had a bunch of these as well, 1958-59 blt. cars have the slight fishbelly.
