The car number cited by Earl, NYC 56331, must be in error since there
were no 56000-series numbers assigned before the Lot 633-B cars Ben
cites below.

Earl, could it be other than 56?

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.
