I like the sheet metal covering some siding adjacent to the door. This shows up when the door is closed.

Re: [RealSTMFC] Video: Erie Railroad Carfloat Operations in Chicago, 1920
At the beginning of the film, the bottom edge of the door on the Rock Island car was ragged. I don't recall anyone modeling that feature, even on heavily-weathered boxcars with wood doors.

It seems there’s a Western Pacific boxcar on this float that is the prototype of the resin parts Andy Carlson was recently selling. It’s at the 2:20 mark.
Is that a circular Feather River Route emblem on the right side of the car?
Stumbled onto this video when taking a break for a moment this morning and agree, it is well worth watching having an actual date and place. I was surprised to find an Erie carfloat operation n Chicago
but there it is on a river with the continuous opening of several different types of drawbridge and diminutive tow boats that make those used on the Champlain Canal look large.
