Reply to "OK Engines passenger cars"

Mac Shops had three different extrusions.  All had the same roof pattern for corrugations.  His first was as above on those beautiful B&O cars.  Then he did the Zephyr pattern - identical, but the roof corrugation pattern extended through the letterboard area above the windows.

The third pattern had a slab side below the windows, matching some PRR coaches and most dome cars.  I have a photo somewhere of that.  

K-Line also made fairly accurate Budd cars.  I have one Zephyr car that, while quite shiny, matches the Mac and GG Budd cars.

Clark Benson bought extrusions made with the inaccurate Lionel die.  At the time Lionel had a correct die, and used it to make baggage cars with strange doors.  Had Clark used that die, he would have captured the 2-rail market and Haynes MacDaniel probably wouldn't have bothered.
