Re: Which sides, roof, etc (was Which trucks?)
No way to know without a car record or photograph of the car. Wood sheathed cars continued in revenue service
even into the early 1960's. Steel rebuilding continued as late as 1956 according to Tony's SP Freight Cars Volume 4.
Cars rebuilt from 1950 onwards received new roofs - over 700 cars total [Vol 4].

Trucks have been discussed, but is it possible to know whether an SP B-50-15 had been rebuilt to steel sides or received a new roof or other equipment?
