Those are WoT 70' cars:

Yes, I know, see #38 and 39 above.
Thanks for the NYC proto photo though, very useful! It shows the double doors clearly...

Speaking of the double doors....

I happened by the WoT site and noticed that the parts dept is listing several of their baggage car door sprues as in stock so have ordered a bunch that I think I can modify as needed to give me replacement doors for several projects and swap some doors in and out on my various WoT baggage cars.

Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them.

Rats. I was lukewarm interested in a CSX unit, but I believe I will pass.

Not much of interest to me. The Q stock cars I guess. It is sad that a company the size of Atlas has nothing I am interested in for the next year plus.

They are not accurate for Dash 2s. They have the large disk in the center of the grilles as found on pre-Dash 2 EMD units., and technically they are not even a good representation of that.  They shouldn’t be domed, for starters.
