These show class SK after they were rebuilt with Z-bar sides and
renumbered in the early 1950s.

N&W 29000-29749 was also Class SK, but these photos show a "missing"
diagonal to the left of the door.

These show class SK as converted from class BL 1-1/2 door box cars in
the mid and late 1930s. The "missing" diagonal is where the half door was
originally located. The solid door on 29000 was carried over from the BL,
but was quickly replaced with a slatted door.
