I tried to do this on my own, and I think I know what I have, but before I
break the seal on the box, I wanted to ask. In trying to flesh out my steel
boxcar roster, I just bought a Bowser kit #55352 40' Double Door, Round flush
roof box car PRR Shadow Keystone Herald. I know the herald is pre-War, and
the car seems to be right, but I can't find a double door version in the
steam era prototype resources I checked. Am I OK on this for a 1945 mixed train?

The Shadow Keystone scheme is post 1954 so no. The car is a pre WWII built
car. The pre 1954 paint scheme is the circle Keystone or also referred to as
the Ball Keystone.
