I'd love to see a photo of the IC 34990- series cars. However,
the IC 27184 most
definitely does NOT have an auxiliary door. Since there are over
400 cars listed,
I think it's safe to say this car (27184) was built this way.

IC 34990 -34999 were originally automobile cars with 10
foot doors. They had Hutchins all steel roofs and Murphy ends.
They had the Aux door closed and 50 ton trucks applied in 1954
and were assigned to hide loading service. This left them with
6 foot doors that weren't staggered. The car diagram says no
5 cars were still in service on 1 January 1960. The IC 1960
equipment list shows 34 more identical cars numbered
34866-34899 in service on 1 January 1960 but they must have
been converted after 1954 as those numbers don't show as hide
cars in my 1954 freight car diagram book.

Of much greater interest to me is this IC 50 foot
box car has a 6 foot door! :-)

Notice the tilted placement

again botch a reweigh decal job...always a possibility.
