N&W class B8 boxcars were 40 foot Pullman Standard PS-1s. Off the top of my head I do not recall the number series, but some of the B8s absolutely did have black ends and roof as built. There was an article in Mainline Modeler years ago with photos and other information about them. -Ed Burnett, Lynchburg, Virginia

> 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,
