These photos are of M-53 boxcar 381538 located at the Florida Railroad
Museum, Parrish (Willow) FL. (, just south of Tampa.

The album also has pictures of M-15NA #374834 and M-15PD #376330 which
are also located at the Florida Railroad Museum. These two cars do
not have the Duryea underframes.

Thank you posting these. Currently, I am not that near any wagon-top
boxcars to photograph their underframes. I specially appreciate those
photos of the M-53. The B&O Museum has a M-53A in its collection. The
Duryea underframe applied to the M-53A is structurally different than
the one use on the original class M-53.
