Re: Can anyone ID the boxcar on the left?

Hello, Claus...

Thanks for another great image.

Based on the pattern of the pressed steel posts and braces, and the fact
that the door opens to the left, the car appears to be a rebuilt PRR X23.
In the late 1930's some were rebuilt by removing the original vertical
sheathing and horizontal bracing between the posts and braces, and
installing horizontal sheathing.

Hi List Members,

Can anyone ID the boxcar on the left? Is this what is called a Warren
truss?
