Might sound better also.
I have one. One for diesel and one for steamers. I don't think that I will do the vibrator approach.

One more 632 picture. This is one on the layout, it is 1948 with brass coupler weights. I believe the one Cramden posted is a darker gray plastic than this one. This appears to me as the “normal” gray color with the “normal” red dots. The difference in the two pictures is the lighting, that is why these cars need to be side by side to discern the differences, other than the black ones or the white ones.

I wasn't sure about mine being a darker gray plastic because I didn't have another one to compare it with. Yours is a great example. I'm glad I didn't get involved with variations all that much on any item, it can get expensive.

Concerning the 632 discussion, unless you have a number of these cars sitting end to end, it is hard to tell the difference in the shades of gray and the red center in the insignia. My photo of the 3 doesn't really show the red dot too clearly in the insignia but there is definitely a difference in the size and color of them. I can only go by what I have but there are two shades of gray. I have more than the 3 I pictured. They were the best of what I have. Maybe I should have taken the picture in my photo both for better lighting.

Kenny, I agree with you that there are at least 2 different gray plastic colors used to make 632's. My only point on the plastic was that to be sure which car is which color they need to be photographed together just as you did. Trying to compare your picture to mine is risky because of the variations in lighting between different photographs.
Regarding the red dots, I feel the variations were random with production runs rather than actual changes as the plastic color was.
