Re: more early early box car biz

That B&O boxcar is one of the original batch of M-8 class cars built between 1897-1901. It predates the Pennsy XL cars. The photo is dated March 1913 so the B&O car has seen lots of service. By 1926, only 21 of the M-8 cars in the original number series had avoided rebuilding with steel center sills and still in-service.
