I found the plans for this car (but no prototype photo) in "Train Shed Cyclopedia No.5"  (1940).  It was definitely CNJ.  Just preceding the plan are two photos of similar (but NOT at all identical) cars: NKP 65018 and B&O 450200.


Ed,
A Bethlehem Steel Co. builder photo of CNJ 89108, built 1-30, series 89000-89199, was published in the 1931 and 1937 Car Builders’ Cyclopedia on pages 221 and 245, respectively.

Both books also include a related figure with plans that are the same as those in Train Shed Cyclopedia No. 5.
