F-70-7-- possible stand-in for C&EI?

In Classic Freight Cars Volume 6 by Maywald (I almost wrote "Henderson") there's C&EI 70-ton flat 42088 and the very similar looking SP 562781. Similar in having 16 stake pockets, with close spacing for the two nearest each end.
Is the C&EI car in the ballpark? I suppose it depends on what league you're playing in. (And I'm taking a chance on whether it was built by the end of our era.)
