Subject: [RealSTMFC] Reading double sheathed boxcar 121XX

Likely one of the remnants of class XMp, series 11550-13549 built in
1910 and 1913 by AC&F. Typical double-sheathed box cars with fishbelly
center sills and two horizontal pressed steel bands wrapped around the
ends. Many were rebuilt with steel doors and roofs in the 1920s. F&C
8194 and 8195 model these; here's a built-up version on Ebay:
