If you are modeling this car 1954 and later it was rebuilt with some extra frame stiffening approximately between the pairs of trucks.  In 1953 it suffered a frame failure.  Photos are found in the North Western Lines magazine, issue 2006:2.

This car lasted as 48053 till 1977 and lived on as X 261399.
