In later years, after the produce traffic died off, they were used in general service to haul most anything.
I have a photo in my collection of one stenciled "For Pulpwood Loading Only"
Labor was cheap :-)

What was shipped in "Ventilated Box Cars" - the ones with open/slotted doors and
ventilators on the ends of the cars?
Most of the pics of them I've seen have been pre-WWII ... when did they stop
being used? What replaced them?
