The walthers 65' gon is a close match for some of the PC gons, but the
rib count is wrong. The 592006 isn't one of them however :^(. It is a G45
class ( PC built I think) and it has a straight sill, whereas the walthers kit
has a drop sill; it is also a riveted car and the walthers is a welded car.
Looking closer at the pictures I think they were probably built at the
NYC Despatch shops as they have ends typical of DS built equipment.
I have pictures of G45's in PC 592056, in CR 592024 and in CR Quality
