RF&P s/s Rebuild (was: S Helper Service "Rebuilt Boxcar")

RF&P did a SS rebuild? You learn something new every day. Anyone
got more info and pictures?
RF&P 2598, rebuilt 9/39 with 5-panel sides and 5-panel welded doors,
what looks from the side like a Viking roof, a power brakewheel, and
inside dimensions of: 40'6" il; 9'2" iw; 10'3" ih; which would have
required some work to raise the ends but I have no details on that.
It was renumbered to 1132 at some point and was still running in 1968.

David Thompson, I put a photo in the Files section...
