What's the difference then between a LV 8300 and an LV 8100?   the 8100
cars are classed as X58's (X58L?) and I have shots of them numbered in an
entirely different CR series.   (Remember that the LV was a PC component
when these cars were built)...

Athearn offers their 50' OB plug door box decorated as a LV 8300 and once
as a PC/P&LE car in green.   is it accurate for any of these cars or just
looks close? I know the ribs are wrong for the 8300 cars.

 :   This evening, I came across an image by Tom Wolfgang of another X65 at
: "Conrail Cyclopedia" web site.  His caption to CR 229782 describes it as:
: << A former LV 50' boxcar from the LV 8300-8399 series >>
:   The LV 8300-8399 series was built in 1969 at the Despatch Shops Inc.,
: Rochester NY, according to the roster in "Box Car Production 1963-1994,"
: compiled by David G. Casdorph (Society of Freight Car Historians  1st
