These illustrate some of the pre-Evans auto loader era automobile
cars of the NYCS:

CCC&StL 91672 - Lot 585-B, steel, built 1929:

NYC 55282, NYC 55847 - Lot 610-B, steel, built 1930:

NYC 56331: This one has me puzzled; the number series popped up as
Lot 633-B, steel automobile boxcars rebuilt in 1935 from Lot 357-B
DS automobile boxcars, which is obviously after the 1929-1930 date
on the wheel reports.

These are distinctively New York Central cars, and lasted well into
the 1960s; unfortunately, there are no kits available for them.
