Re: Northern Pacific Automobile Box Car NP 8029

Interesting car and interesting what the photos reveal about it.   I was struck by the heavy demarcation between boards the side sheathing of this car.   The three quarter angle view is particularly revealing as I think it shows that the edges of the boards were bevelled - similar to some vertical siding.  I'd be interested to know if this is unusual for NP cars, or not.
