Stefan Lerche asked:
Can someone comment on this Steve Wzdeck photo of IC #162099? Who
built/ how does one describe this type of boxcar end?

This is a Van Dorn end, applied to an indeterminate number of house cars in
the teens. I'm not sure how many railroads built cars with this end; a
builder's photo of PRR 63837, a Class XL built in 1912 is on page 18 of the
Summer 2000 Keystone (which extensively covers Class XL with articles by
Gary Rausch, Bob Johnson, and Al Westerfield).
