Re: What car is this on the Rio Grande?

"The photo below was posted on the Rio Grande Historical Society Facebook page by Parker Wilson from his collection. I am reposting here with his permission.  Does anybody know what the silver car is? It looks like there is a BX-11 or 12 raised roof behind it so it is pretty tall."

That's not a silver car, but a red car with white staining.  Assuming that the car behind it is a raided roof Bx-12/Bx-13 (10 ft 6 in IH), my guess is it's a 40 ft steel automobile boxcar.
