Re: What is the third car from the camera?

An interesting car indeed.

Another term to use could be a "roofed" gondola as in "roofed" hopper an early term used by the B&O to describe what became covered hoppers.

Can we be sure the car is in revenue service? The photo date is 1916 and the car appears to be all wood construction so its age could be from 16 to 26 years.

Just some thoughts ...
