Per the NKPHTS Company Store the Summer 2005 issue of their magazine has an article titled ... By Any Other Name by Peter K. Shepherd; on the 22000's.  Includes 10/23/29 builders photos of 22249 and an additional view of 22341.

Nope: 22000-22349, and 22350-22499 (with end doors). All-steel boxcars built by Standard Steel in 1929. These were the first all-steel freight cars bought new by the NKP, and are vaguely similar to 1932 ARA boxcars.
