Re: Plain Boxcars in Mail Service - 1945

I'm not sure how "plain" the plain boxcars are. Note the
baggage car in line. If I'm not mistaken, this is one of the
UP boxcars fitted for express service. If you look past the
ERIE car, the next car looks awfully like a new paint job
too. Were ERIE cars also fitted for express?
As a rule, no. I doubt that one qualifies.
