Unfortunately, no, nor did a good bit of web surfing looking for one succeed. Sorry.

Subject: Re: [RealSTMFC] EARLY LV "wrong way" box
Based upon the car data lettering and lack of full 1911 Safety Appliance Act amendment hardware, this photo is 100+ years old. Was it on the Library of Congress site? If so, it’s public domain.
Do you have a link to share?
We’ve recently been advised that more roads than just the Lehigh Valley owned “wrong way” box cars. This is a snip from a larger photo titled “Buffalo NY 1910 Kellog Company.” I am not sure just how I got that photo, but I noticed this LV box car on a siding at the very bottom edge of the image.
The overall photo is interesting, but I am not sure of the permissions to share the entire image. It shows an active steam pile driver and new concrete silos under construction using slip forms.
