Re: Need help identifying boxcar

The cars the WAG bought from the B&M were XM-1s. The WAG started
buying these cars in 1958, and eventually acquired several hundred of
them. Don't know about that door though. All the XM-1s on the WAG
that I have seen had Youngstown doors versus the door on BM 71785. Is
the difference in doors a result of different orders? There also
appeared to be a difference in roofs on the XM-1s the WAG purchased.
Some cars had a roof that looked completely flat while others had a
roof with very prominent ribs at the panel joints.
