These 36-ft cars are an interesting addition to the models available for
the D&RGW.   Some were rebuilt as transfer cabooses and others were in
M/W service.  A railroad museum in Phoenix has one of the prototypes, it
was sold to the Tuscon, Cornelia & Gila Bend, perhaps before WWII.  
Inside the car was found paperwork showing it had last been used on the
Rio Grande to carry beans from the San Luis Valley.  Does anyone know if
any of these boxcars received the "Flying Rio Grande" decoration?

Also in the works from Accurail is another 36-ft wooden boxcar, painted
black for the Denver & Salt Lake.
