That appears to be the early Pullman Standard end (prior to what they
developed for the PS-1). As I recall they were used in the late 1930s early
1940s. The B&O had a couple of M-55 classes that used that end and I seem to
recal the W&LE did too. Probably other roads as well that I expect others can
fill in. This conversion kit would be potentially useful for B&O modelers except
the M-55 class had 10' IH not 10'6".

Ian, Chris,
The CGW had 50' DD cars with these same early Pullman ends plus a couple series of
40' cars with 10' IH. Stan Rydarowicz also makes this end in both the 4/5 for 10' 6"
and 4/4 for 10' IH cars.

Does anyone know of an on-line catalog for Stan Rydarowicz? These ends also show up on KCS/L&A equipment.
