Eric,

Bob's original post liked two photos, of two different flatcars.

C&NW 50801 in the second photo is a 40', 40 ton class B-4 car, series 49001-50999 odd, built by Pullman 1904-05. These were wood framed cars with 8 truss rods.  Three additional lots from AC&F and Pullman in 1907-08 added 51001-53199 odd to the class, for a total of 2100 cars, some of which lasted in revenue service  into the late twenties. 

Thanks for finding this one, Bob.
