Gee, and here I thought the built date of 3-44 and the shop date of 6-59
would have been sufficient to make this all obvious. I was not aware of any
standard offset side cars built during the War Emergency, but if there were
then this could also be a rebuild of one of those.
According to a 1970 NSRy roster, these cars were built in 1944. I haven't found out by who, or what years the Norfolk Southern leased them.
