Re: Use of Autoboxcars during WW2?

This type of car would not have appeared on the Branchline I model - but I would look at the 50' Dbl. door boxcar from Proto - I think they are from the late 30's, maybe 1940.

I am wondering what Autoboxcars were used for during World War 2?
Were they making cars during the war, I didn't think so? I model a
small branchline in Utah and I would assume that they could also use
auto boxcars for lumber or other merchandise? Thanks.
