Bob,

Yes, the B&O box car is a class M-26D, the lettering for the class is visible through the windshield, in its as-built appearance. Some orders of M-26D were delivered with Youngstown doors. Notice the chalk marks on the sides. An interesting photo.

I seem to recall that appliances and similarly sized objects were shipped in "crates" into the 1960s. Some items still are shipped in crates.
