There is a good chance the cars originated here in Birmingham from ABC Coke works.  They are now owned by Drummond Coal out of Jasper, AL.  I saw a lot of these cars parked at the plant in Tarrent many years ago.  Yes they did have a lot of different varieties of them

L&N coke box car. The L&N rebuilt a variety of cars for coke service. My Dad photographed
one in Pueblo Colorado (CF&I Steel) in the late 1960's. They probably also made it to Provo,
to the USS Geneva works. Met coal & coke from east of the Mississippi was a common sight in
Colorado, even to the very end of steel making in Colorado.

Some nice stuff on the site. You can click on the "X" in the upper right to get to thumbnails of the photos.

In doing so, I came across one car and I was wondering if it is the prototype of Walthers "Jailbox" car?

And Thanks for sharing the link Gary!
