There is one large window, whereas the paired window has 2 smaller windows together

What the hell is a single window coach? They all have more than one window to my non passenger fan eye.
Single window is one of those terms that must have been invented by a railfan or modeler, but refers to a coach with 16 or more small, evenly spaced windows, like this

A paired window coach has similar small windows but arranged in pairs with wider spacing between pairs

And just to make it more confusing, a few roads had coaches with fewer, wider windows

MTL announced that they are offering to replace the brown CNJ gondola car 105-00-300 with one painted black, which will be available next March or April, if the cars are sent back to them by December 2nd. The new black car, with a new item number 105-00-301, can also be (pre)ordered on its own.

So, the collectors/speculators can hold onto and/or scoop up the remaining incorrectly painted brown cars while the modelers can eventually get the correctly painted black cars.

or the old "Main Central" car  :trollface: ?

Actually, they've done 2 runs of the NKP composite hopper in 2 shades of brown - and they were only ever painted black.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Apparently the car was part of a class of two, with roadnumbers 3000 and 3001.
Have you seen a prototype photo of either one?



The model car is stenciled with instructions to return it to the B&O Central Terminal RR at Cicero IL and references the Hotpoint pool.
If indeed the liberty logo was yellow, could that have been used to distinguish the two cars assigned to Hotpoint factory service?

That's a very likely scenario.  Atlas did the car in O with a white logo however.

Here's the plant.

As far as I know, the Pullman green express boxcars were the only CNJ freight equipment to get yellow lettering and heralds, and the heralds weren't that large on the express boxcars.

It'll be a nice stand in until a correct one, if ever, comes along from MTL.
