Re: Help Identifying Boxcar Ends.

3/4 or 0/3/4 (if you define ends from the top down), or 4/3 or 4/3/0 (Bottom up) 10’ ends – probably Intermountain.  Ed Hawkins defines this as IDN Type 1 or IDN-1.  A little bit of Excel work on Ed’s data for Postwar Aar 10’ IH (1945-1958) cars shows 16320 out of 40172 cars were built with this end.

Can anyone assist in identifying a steam era boxcar project for these ends? Photos attached. Thank you.
