SR pulpwood car


In the February 1956 Model Railroader there is an O scale construction article for a Southern pulpwood car that appears to be a 10 stake pocket flat car with bulkhead ends and low wooden sides attached.  The number used on the model does not match any Southern flat cars or LP cars in the January 1952 ORER or January 1957 ORER.

Is the car accurate and numbered incorrectly or actually a model of a car from another road?  The modeling is very nice even by today's standards but is the car freelanced?

Speaking of reversed dreadnaught ends the Southern made pulpwood cars from boxcars with reversed dreadnaught ends.
