Boxcar has truss rods, Fox trucks and a "reverse opening" door.

Notice the vertical grab iron and lack of a sill step on the near corner of this car. All three boxcars have only one sill step. I speculate the single sill step was a common arrangement during that era, before the Safety Appliance Act was amended in 1911.

The second boxcar is Lackawanna 27189.
