Re: Opening End Door Boxcars
I don't know where in the world you are at but IRM (www.irm.org) has both a end door Rock island boxcar 264070
with no floor tubes and only extra interior fittings was some anchor points near the roof of the car. Yes, the end door does work. All that bickering about loading devices was unnecessary as some cars had them some did not. Also at the museum is an end door baggage car which allowed for automobiles or other long objects like stage show sets and backgrounds to be shipped express.
