Boxcar identification assistance

Brent Greer

In the accompanying link, at the far left of the photo there is a boxcar that caught my attention.

I cannot really make out the lettering on the car, but the general shape of it makes me think it could read "Nickel Plate Road", and the unusual number of panels making up the car side make me think that that this could be an aluminum sheathed car.

I would appreciate the opinions of the experts here on our list.

Sincere thanks,

Dr. J. Brent Greer
