Re: 36-foot box car data files - second summary

The photos I have of the 220series cars show 6/8 ends. So as a stand in, yes.
The 7/7 ends on the 215 series make it a closer match, though I am still wondering about height. A photo I have shows a side ladder rather than grab iron style, with 7 rungs rather than the 6 grab irons. Easy modification.
