i posted photos in files section, gonna guess no help out there...


Your photos are somewhat out of focus, but assuming the end is an

R-3-4 Early Improved Dreadnaught, the closest cars I was able to find are:

CIL 1601-1690

PRR X44 604000-604999

As Andy mentioned, the door panels are not exactly correct, but my

notes show both of these cars have 16 panel sides, 8' Improved

Youngstown door, diagonal panel roof, R-3-4 Early Improved Dreadnaught

ends. Photos appear to confirm tabbed side sill.

Hope this is helpful,
