    I think that those are called gallery cars, used in commuter service. Kato has them in HO: you'll have to scroll down the page a bit.

    I ordered two of those Walters cars the other day. I contacted them regarding a corrugated version but they don't offer it. I'll look around for fluting.

    I'm just getting into HO scale trains/layouts and I'm still trying to figure out what I can just purchase and what stuff I'll have to customize to fit my needs. I appreciate all the help!

    After a little sytrene and Floquil's Old Silver paint I came up with my own using the previously mentioned Walthers Pullman Bi-levels.

    Thanks. I'm just have to add some decals and the blue board with the Metra logo on it.

    What'd you use for fluting?

    By "Pullman" I assume you mean the car was built by Pullman-Standard?? "Pullman" generally refers to Pullman sleeping cars, which haven't been around for quite a while outside of museums.
