Thanks for posting this, Bob!
This might be a little earlier than the 1915 date indicated on the site. I can’t quite read the weigh stencil but note the lack of proper sill steps and hand holds to meet the 1911 Safety Appliance Act amendment. The car was built in 1909-1910.
There was a lag in updating the cars to meet these new standards, so 1915 might be correct.
