Barry, is there any way you could share that image? MP 31783 was a
1932 ARA box car (MP 30000-32499 built 1936-1937 by Mount Vernon.)
I'd guess the Morton running board was a replacement for the
original running board.

One of the Delano Bensenville photos shows MP 31059, and it appears
to have a wood rb (although the image is blurry).

A Mount Vernon builder photo of MP 31999 shows a wood rb.

I have a photo of a MoPac 40ft boxcar, MP 31783, with Morton
running board and cross walks, but a plain brake step, taken in 1956
being mechanically unloaded at a grain elevator. This is from
Museum of Industry, so I assume the unloading was actually in
