I noticed there is an 3/4 image of 69459 that includes the b end, found on p.73 of Focus on Freight Cars vol 1, single sheathed box and automobile cars, by Richard Hendrickson.

The B end is modeled as a corrugated end, should be Dreadnaught. I think maybe the builder was misled by the Cyc drawing, which just shows the end ribs in profile like corrugated ones.
Below is a builder photo of a B end — actually an A-50-11 but differing only at the other end, the A end, where end doors were located (on -10) or not located (on -11).
