Pete, where is that branch.  I'm modelling it because it was travelling Keokuk 
to Centreville Iowa in the early sixties.  Duncan

  3537 ran on the Corning-Villisca branch..No's 94-93 for many years...Jim 
Christen and I rode the line at least once a year starting in 1949 through 1956.

  The car is number 3537, one of eight cars converted for branchline use in 
1948-49 from AC&F built coaches. Yes, it had a baggage door cut into it but 
kept both coach vestibules. The "rib" is low on the letterboard - maybe a 
quarter of the way up between the windows and the roof. Something similar 
appears on the 4500 and 6100 coaches.
  I'll take a look at some of the cars you mentioned. Thanks.

  I think I know the type of car you are talking about..... IIRC they are steel 
sheathed wood cars.
  Some of the Pullman steel sheathed cars had the rib above the letterboard as 
well. If you have a car number the exact heritage of the car would be easy to 
trace using Glick's books or Joe Douda's source material

  I'm not sure there is a really good starting point for the cars. I would look 
at the AHM Pullman or some of the IHC Pullmans to use as a "core" kit. Maybe 
you'l luck out and the window spacing from one of them will work out. The IHC 
cars are all over the map as to height of letterboard, windows, and girder 
panels (even though all the Pullmans should be identical) so one might work 
out. Thinking about it, the Athearn Coach and Baggage cars might be a starting 
point as well... they had a pretty deep letterboard.

  It is going to be an extensive kitbash as the car type I'm thinking about was 
a coach that had a baggage door cut into the side, so was itself a kitbash.
