Re: B&O "wagon top" boxcars

Thanks for the correction, Ed !

B&O 375160 and 377002 were rebuilt from earlier M-15 class wagon top cars in 1955, according to B&O diagrams for these cars.

The 375160 (former class M-15-k) was class M-15p with 6' wide doors. The 377002 (former class M-15nb 40 ton) was class M-15pe (50 ton) and outfitted with 8' wide doors.

Both may have had expanded metal running boards and platforms installed during their 1955 make-overs.
