Besides the X29's, another 40' boxcar series having a 32' 3" distance between truck centers were DL&W's #45000 series double sheathed SUF 2,965 cf, 8' 7" IH boxcars according to the drawing & data on pages 116-117 of of the 1931 Carbuilder's Cyclopedia. CNJ's steel 21000-21699 series was another - pages 124-125 of the 1931 Cyc.. I would not be a bit surprised if RDG's 100000-100999 was another series having 32' 3" truck centers, but I have nothing to say yea or nay to prove it.
