I'm always mixing up the class on that car.  The well is FW1.

I did a bit of research and found one reference on the web to a PC 766163
as being the well body and PC 766196 as the depressed flat body. If you
read all of the page, he crosses his wires on the class/numbers, so I'm
going to go with what I find in the PC Color Guide and ORER.

Here's the web site: 

As for the painting of the well car and loads... I'll just have to keep

Thanks for the info.
