40' boxcars with 20' doors

The GN also had one of these: GN 29001. It shows up in my April 1958 ORER as a new car. It's in the January 1976 but not in the April 1980. I recall it as looking similar to the SAL cars. I wonder if it was inspired by them. It was apparently an unsuccessful experiment, as GN never copied it. And I wonder what it was for--wood trusses come to mind.
