Yes, that is interesting. It looks to me like
overlaid? steel? bars on the side. The fasteners
at the bottom of the side at each vertical piece
lend to that impression. They >could< also be
thicker, and wider, wooden pieces. Interesting.

intriguing car

An interesting photo on this site is of CNW
128698, a double
sheathed box car from 1912. What I found odd
was the dark
lines or shadows spaced along the side
sheathing, making it
look somewhat like the panels of a steel
sheathed car. What
is it in the design that gives this appearance?
