Very nice!

I have this Kato car in N scale and was really pleased when I purchased it, only to find out later it is a total foob that bears only a slight resemblance to the prototype. 3 axle vs. 2 axle trucks being perhaps the biggest discrepancy, but there are other rather big ones as well. Still a nice car though.

It's a foob for the Rio Grande version as well.  I could be wrong but I recall the model is based on a CB&Q car.
