    I understand there where 45 total cars. Does anyone recall/have the entire roster series? I have thus far as follows:

    8002-8006
    The end cars (Number 8000 series, “A” cars) featured a standard height tight lock (Type H) coupler and a set of cast steel counterweights. The other end featured the fifth wheel hitch.

    1001-1003 1011-1031 Intermediate car (Number 1000 Series, “C” cars). On one end would be a set of wells for the trailers tires to sit in, and on the other end, a fifth wheel hitch. Both ends of the car had low height couplers.

    9001-9006 Final car (Number 9000 series, “B” cars) would have only a set of wells for the wheels, then on the end would be steel counterweights and a standard height Type H coupler.
