It certainly looks like a B50-15

Claus and Charles,

It is a B-50-15, built for the SP subsidiary Morgan's Louisiana & Texas (ML&T) in 1925 as 53060-53559 or 1926 as 36210-36509. These were relettered to T&NO, probably around 1928, though I wasn't able to find the exact date. T&NO ended up with 800, while the SP had 3,100. Some lasted on the SP as late as 1970. The last T&NO car was retired around 1965.

Yours Aye,

Garth Groff

I can make out the SP herald and the "T&" before the vertical rib.  I would take it as a T&NO car.

Hi List Members,
The resolution on this image is lacking a bit, but my feeling is that the reporting mark on this 40ft Pratt truss single sheathed boxcar might be T&NO - does anyone have thoughts one way or the other?
