I like looking closely at old photos like these. In the first photo, the Illinois Central box car has a little bit of a sag in it, while the Southern car right behind it has a very slight arch to it. The rest of the cars appear to be straight.

I love the saggy cars in both photos. There really IS a prototype for those
