Re: Photo: Repainted CB&Q Boxcar 11988
Tony’s right, when larger steel automobile cars became available, many CB&Q door and one half single sheathed boxcars had the small door welded shut by placing a steel plate between the door and the Z-bar to the left of the door. You can clearly see that plate in the photo. The disabled door was stenciled Single Door Car to give crews a heads up that the small door wasn’t operational.

Um, it's a double door, Bob. They have just disable one half, so only one door functions.
