Does anyone know if the original source and builder has been confirmed for the 15-16 US Army Transportation Corps 36ft single-sheathed boxcars that sat for years in the EBT yard at Mt Union PA? (Since scrapped and removed.) Several sources I found say they were ex-BAR as the outline of the BAR lettering could be seen under the peeling olive drab paint.
