That appears to be one of?69 steel boxes built by the CB&Q at Galesburg in 1944 to transport B-29 assemblies to Fort Crook.? They were mounted on FM-14 flat cars of 53'6" length built in 1942.? They were 12 inches wider and 19 inches higher than the standard 50' box cars of the day.??They are covered in Burlington Bulletin No. 15, including photos and plans.?

Anyone able to offer more information about the car in this photo?
It appears to be an auto boxcar of some sort, with the end doors, or perhaps
a baggage car. The recessed ladders and smooth sides make me wonder if it is
a wide bodied car of some sort.
