Re: Photo: Wabash Mather Boxcar 19290 (1910)

The car in the photo is a Mather automobile boxcar. PM 60000-60299 were on lease from 1914 to 1918.

Several railroads leased these 36-foot auto boxcars between 1907 and 1918, when the cars were removed from lease by Mather (they didn't make money after 1915 or so): C&EI, MC, PM and Wabash.
