When was that car built?
Does the apparently excess door track indicate the car originally had
double doors?
Is that an arched roof as opposed to peaked?
Built in September, 1923, as a 1-1/2 door car with 10' door openings,
series 9000-9099. Rebuilt as single door cars and renumbered into the
30600 series in the 1930s. The roof is the original NP-designed
curved, metal sheathed wood roof which the NP called a "circular" roof
and applied to all of its house cars from the teens through the early
1930s.
