I was under the impression that these cars were originally intended for on-line LCL service.  Any truth to that?

IIRC, there about a dozen of these B&O M-55 cars wearing this paint scheme. Many others were in the more typical red with B&O lettering. More info starts on page 29 of this B&O Modeler issue.

Even with its very low mounted bottom door track the Yougstown door still is a 5/6/5-Short. Along with the ends, the color scheme makes for an interesting, well-travelled Eastern box car.
