ATSF 116160 is in fact a Bx-3 in the 116000-116999 Series built with KC brakes by Pullman in 1923 and rebuilt by the Santa Fe with AB brakes and Ajax brake wheels in the 40s.

A mid-1950s scene taken at San Bernardino, CA, from the Kansas State Historical Society's archives:

I believe the boxcar in the photo is either a Bx-3 or a Bx-6, a survivor of an original group of 5,000 boxcars built between 1923 and 1925.
