Clinchfield SS USRA boxcar

Interesting photo.  I’m wondering about the “board” immediately above the side sill.  It appears a different tone.  Is it just a different width filler board, a floor board, or does it serve another function?  I don’t recall noticing anything like this at the bottom of side sheathing on a USRA car in the past.

Hi Jim and List Members,


The site Jim referenced has some cool railroad photos. See below for a Clinchfeld USRA single sheathed boxcar.
