The Packerland decal is for NADX 3708, here's one of the other cars in that series.

from the Soo Line Historical & Technical Society.

Wow, thanks for posting that, very nice and in color (I always liked Soo Line Fs in maroon as well).
 I never did do anything on this except buy the decals, so this might get me going on it again!

Here’s the outcome.

I used a stock MT reefer with the fishbelly underframe removed and a straight frame built using a styrene strip. I body mounted 1015s. I usually lower cars by filing the bolster, but the proto car appears to sit pretty high off the trucks so I left it alone.

It’s a nice, eye catching car.
