yeah that's one of the reasons i posted it, Banks-it's longer than the one you're referring to. it also doesn't have the vertical boards running along the top.

each of these cars has some interesting little variation that made it more appropriate for a specific purpose or condition in a mine, or was someone's idea of what was better, or was what was available, etc.

nope. they were put there because the guy doesnt like the no.9 for some reason. no display or anything, how you see them is how they are going to sit.
