C&NW 91226 seems to have a more steeply sloped roof than normal….compare the angle to the two cars it is between…almost the width of the fascia board oon the C&NW box next to it…

Claus, I think that says Barley MIX, not MEX. And the wood which appears to be nailed on? I think the consigners we worried that the door would flex enough to let the load leak out at the bottom sides of the doors, so they improvised a “clamp” to hold it tight.
Hi List Members,
C&NW 81226 36ft ds trussrod box in Mexico 1922, Is there a temporary repair or other expedient on the lower part of the door? Perhaps to deal with a broken door mechanism? Note the chalk mark that might read "Barley Mex" but I could be wrong.
We also get partial views of boxcar SP 21580 and a ss C&NW boxcar.
