boxcar before the edge of the picture? The letters aren't quite
distinct enough. If so, would anyone have an idea what number series it
is from? It seems like a DS rebuild."

Most likely L&N 8000-8999, AC&F, built 1921 based on the ends. These
are NOT rebuilt DS boxcars - they retained their wood sheathing
throughout their service lives.
