Marty, ATSF #50 is the "Santa Fe", same as sister car #51 Topeka. I have scale plans for #51.

Send me an email (Southwes[email protected]) and I'd be happy to send you large scans of the plans as well as other photos of the car.

Below is a shrunken image of part of the plans for #51. Shrunken so I can post it on this site...but you can't see much detail this small:

Marty,

This car looks like one of the old "Iron Pony Co." streamliners. These were built around 1990. I worked part-time for a die-casting company that produced the castings used on their rolling stock. I actually made the die-casting molds for some of these cars!......couplers, door ends for the diaphrams and side frames and journals for the trucks. Now that was a nice job. Eventually around 2000, Riding Rail Kits bought the stuff. I don't know if they are still around.

One of our members of LALS was the founder of Iron Pony and has had some beautiful trains in that scale. I remember one train that was the Super Chief with ABBA F7's in War Bonnet livery. Very striking models!

thanks all, Matt e-mail sent. Gary, I thought about buying a block of alum from the machine shop the right size and working it down for the rear. Sounds like you did have the perfect job.
Once I get the car and when I start on it I will post a thread in rolling stock.

Marty,

I had the same thought about the aluminum block as soon as I saw the car. Find a NC mill shop around you and I'll draw the surface model for the back end. Matt has the scale drawings and I can redraw in MasterCam, add surfaces with all detail and it's done. Easy peasy!
