Longevity and numbers of M&StL double sheathed boxcars

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for some information regarding some Minneapolis & St Louis
36ft double sheathed, truss rod boxcars. Two photos are available on
the NEB&W website at:

26250-from-Propst.jpg

The NEB&W website simply lists the cars as belonging to the 26000
series. Does anyone know the complete number series, and was the
numbering even or odd? Also, were any of these cars still in
interchange service in the late 1940s?

Thanks,
Mark Heiden
