Hi Bob and List Members,
Any chance this is an insulated boxcar? Possible
equipped with a heater? I ask because the one door we can just barely see looks
like it has two leaves and is hinged like a reefer door.

Very good view of the "A"
Possibly Western Heater
Despatch boxcar. J. Kibben Ingalls was head of the North Western Refrigerator
Line Company and organized his own private car company, the Western Heater
Despatch, in 1906.
