Re: Help Identifying Boxcar Ends.
SOME of the SP B-50-27 box cars had the earlier ends without the extra thin rib at the top.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I've enclosed two photos to show this - SP 100303 and 100441. Evidently the ends changed during
the construction period.
The B-50-27 had a 10-0 IH body with 6' door and 10 panel sides - For that you will need
the Intermountain 1937 AAR body (which has a blank space for the car end).
The WM 29000 cars had 7 foot doors. No plastic body.
The B&O M-56 had 8 foot doors. No plastic body.
The DL&W cars had the earlier ends.
The GN 11000 series had the earlier ends.

Those look like Improved Dreadnaught Ends for 10’0” IH cars. They have been described as having rolling pin shaped corrugations and a stiffening rib at the top.
