the difference between what

There is no such thing as a "car builder's door" or
"car builder's end" or whatever. It is not a proper name,
but a placeholder. When you see "car builder" on a general
arrangement diagram or other paperwork it means the railroad
(buyer) let the carbuilder decide who to buy that part from
rather than specifying the source itself.
Period. End of rant.
