Wabash and Ann Arbor only, NOT DT&I. The DT&I USRA DS rebuilds
retained their 5/5/5 Murphy ends (vice the 7/8 ends of the Wabash cars,
which were NOT rebuilt from USRA DS cars) and had a unique 15 U-section
carline steel roof.

The DT&I also leased PRR Class X26C rebuilt boxcars after WWII, but
these were markedly different in appearance than either of these cars.
