Re: B&O double sheathed boxcar with single sheathed ends?

Dave Parker

I don't know how unusual this combination is generally, but it (or something similar) is not uncommon on rebuilt 36-ft DS cars (D&H, NYNH&H, probably others).  But, this is a 40-ft car (says my 1938 ORER), so maybe it is.  Perhaps one of the B&O experts can comment.

I do, however, find the roof unusual.  Why to the seam caps seem to stop a good foot short of the eave?  Have we ever seen this before?
