 The build date is correct for this series. I don't know anything about the black roof and ends.

 Hello all,In a moment of weakness, I bought a Kadee HO scale 40’ boxcar that poses as an N&W B8, with a 1953 build date in the 53000-53499 number group. Unlike most all others I’ve seen, this one has a black roof and ends. Izzat prototypical? The microscopic lettering on the car side denotes “For Clean Freight Only” — dunno if that makes any difference.Thoughts, memories, etc., welcomed.Thanks much,
