Ken, here is some data that may interest you. The xlsx file of early welded MILW box cars helps put 6000-6499 in perspective. The txt file provides some physical features, demographics and ORER counts and renumbering over the service life of the series.
Hope these are helpful

I am looking for info on MILW boxcars in the series 6000-6499. Car number 6293 appears in a 1950 wheel report in my possession. 1950 ORER lists these as "all steel" 40' double-door cars, but curiously there appear to be only 104 cars left. Is this perhaps a steel rebuild? Photos or any other information would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
