I came across this photo on Flickr:

Caption: "Old wooden boxcar stored at the small yard in Butler NJ. This photo is from August 1988."

 

I noticed this wood sheathed boxcar has a plug door. Were plug doors commonly applied to older wood sheathed boxcars? I assume plug doors were applied during a rebuilding of this car.
