Re: Odd 4 rivet wide vertical seam boxcar


The flat car behind (in front of?) the box car intrigues me as well. An interesting load.

This car that Gary has asked about appears to be a 1951 rebuilt car from MP 47000 series. The rivet (and stenciling) pattern seems more affected by the blurred image rather than the design.  See RP CYC 14 page 37 for a better image.

This is a partially blurred picture but the 4 rivet wide vertical seams on the side of the car do stand out as well as the extra width added.  Does anyone recognize this boxcar?
