PRR X36 Boxcar


My guess is that it was an experimental (only one was built) lighter weight car, saving roughly 3,000 pounds compared to the similar vintage X35 cars:
The X36 was also much wider than the X35 inside (9'4" compared to 8'9") presumably because of no (or a thin) wooden liner.

It looks to me to be very much of a precursor to modern car designs but built much earlier than expected. Anyone have further details on this car?
