The car in the photo is a CN GS gon of the "Enterprise design.  CN inherited a number of 36' versions from the Intercolonial/Canadian Government Railways, possibly CNoR and also the GTR, then had more 40 footers built.  The doors were individually operable.  Later, the doors were sealed and these cars became regular gons.  As built, at least one CGR order had wood sheathing on a steel framed body.
