Thanks! I found another better one of the same wreck:
Can you read the lot number from this?

Elden Gatwood asked:
are these NYC or P&LE blister hoppers?
Yes; possible lots are 639-H, 640-H, 641-H, 645-H, 651-H, 655-H, or 674-H converted in 1936, 1937, and 1940. Note that these cars have the type of blister panels that include interlocking side posts vice the ones that reused the existing side posts. NYCS did convert twelve other cars in 1933 and 1935, but I'm not sure if they used these sides.
