The old AHM/Model Power ( possibly the concor, I haven't looked closely)
40FT PS1's with sliding doors have usable ends. Not a particularly good
Pullman end, usable for despatch and cheap too. I used them on an Athearn
smoothside plug door car and needed to narrow them a bit to get a good fit.
The resulting cars look pretty good ( a NYC plug door and P&E slider) unitl
something better comes along.
I bought some evergreen half round shapes with an eye towards despatch ends
but haven't gotten around to that yet......
I check all the used junk stuff at train shows
