Red Caboose did --

RI 59xx -- wrong ends! should be 27200 series
WABASH 900xx -- ok
RDG 109xxx -- ok

There were a number of prototypes with "carbuilder"
or "dartnot" ends with welded sides and 8' doors. I
don't have complete rosters for every railroad so there
are probably others I missed.

EJ&E, GTW, NJI&I, RDG, SA, SEABOARD, SLSF, and SOUTHERN all had steel
cars with IL 40'6", IH 10'6", door 8'0", but it is doubtful they were
welded.
