Shenandoah Valley 40' steel box car
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
This car you pictured seems to have maybe been a 8-9 foot door car converted to a single 6' door car. Look at the L side has 6 panels while the right side has 7. The lower door track extends out further than the top, perhaps when shortening the door tracks going to the next track support bracket was felt necessary.
Another possibility is that the car was a door and a half car, converted to a 6' single door car with some panel additions/relocations necessitated?
thanks for the picture.

Are you thinking of something like this? Shenandoah Valley MW boxcar, still in service out of Staunton, Virginia.
