If you want to check out how your CNR models compare to the prototype take a look at these photos of the CNR car on display at Komoka, Ont. When it arrived there was some work to be done along with a coat of post 1954 era paint. I don't recall the number and one has not been applied to the car.
This style of CNR car was no stranger to New England. Almost all the lines carried each others baggage cars on occasion. For instance I have seen NYC and CNR baggage cars appearing in photo on the Rutland Ry. passenger trains...George Dutka
