Re: Boxcar help request

Andy Carlson

The car appears to be a 50' 16 panel 8' Single door boxcar. I am having problems viewing the end photo. The door is bizzare, for a 4/6/6 improved Youngstown door would typically come on a 10-0 IH boxcar, which I don't recall ever knowing of a 8' door 10-0 IH 50' 16 panel car..... Ignore the door, and there are lots of 50'ers with these other characteristics. How about a NP???
