Subject: [STMFC] Great Northern Boxcars GN 4000 to 5999

Looking for a diagram page and photos of Great Northern wood boxcars GN
4000 to GN 5999. These were rebuilt in 1926/1927 with steel underframes
from earlier Haskell & Barker boxcars built between 1898 and 1917. In
the early 1940's 300 of these were converted into flatcars for company
material service, series was 63XXX ??? Needing the information for an
upcoming restoration project.
