So the one I was referring to was a rebuilt, ex-DT&I USRA double sheathed boxcar. That’s helpful.

Give this page a look (check the line "ORER Notes" under each listing for special equipment and features): 

WRX put cars in dried blood service in later years (rebuilt ex-DT&I 11500-11799 steel plug-door RB's), but I am not aware of any 1929-built WRX wood-sided cars that had hatches.
