"A neighbor gifted me this interesting depressed center flat car.  It has no markings.  Can anyone identify it and maybe provide a prototype photo?  I'm guessing it is too modern for my 1950's layout, but I'm hoping otherwise."

"Looks like the Walthers modern car.

Concur with Brian's assessment.  Most of my magazines are in storage so I can't verify this right away, but Mike Rose's "Modifying Walthers Depressed Center Flat Car" in the October 2007 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman might have more information.
