Nice job, Tim!
Here’s a few more of these guys.
No one I know of is doing the u/f for these cars, but they should be.
Late long taper IDE, 5-panel riveted sides with 8 ft Ytown door, gussets, and OH diag panel roof, plus unique u/f. Some had Universal brakes, at least some, Morton r/b’s. Later groups had different interior equipment, including either Stage Loaders or STB equipment. See doors for variations on that theme. And they did change over time.
I have not seen the definitive write-up on these sub-classes.
