N&W Class S-1 Sleepers;

I want to build a model of the N&W Class S-1 Sleepers, which were built by
the Budd Company, circa 1950.

These cars were all originally built with skirts; my research notes
indicate these cars were originally built with Cor-Ten steel plates and
there was a serious problem with corrosion; in 1954 authorization was given
to replace those steel plates with stainless steel plates.

I am trying to determine when the skirts were removed from these cars; it
seems to me the skirts would have been removed at the same time the plates
were replaced.  I have an undated photo of the *Scioto County* without
skirts; my notes indicate its plates were replaced in June 1954.

I have a photo of the *Hampden-Sydney College* in Petersburg on June 21,
1955 and it still has skirts; my notes indicate it received the corrosion
repairs in July 1956.

Does anyone have more definitive information or photos of these cars?

Many thanks.
