Re: Is this "DowelLoc" flooring in this box car?

This car has wood flooring with an overlay of perforated steel floor protection plates. I don't know what brand of plates these are. 
The namesake Doweloc car flooring was 12" wide laminated hardwood planks, made from narrow strips doweled together. Doweloc was introduced in the late '50s. There were competing laminated floor planks made by gluing instead of doweling, that would probably be indistinguishable when installed.
