I have a 1958 shot from [Dan Smith/Andy Carlson] of DICX 379 (Pure Carbonic)
that is a 10'6" box car with R+3/4 ends, 10 panel riveted sides (with extra
rivet row in each panel) and a very weird, low, narrow door with 8 hinges.
Taken somewhere in Southern California.
Tim, DICX were the Merchants Despatch reporting marks for dry ice cars, as I mentioned in my previous post. They leased cars to a number of companies in the '40s and '50s.
