Don is not the only one guilty of this example of sloppy terminology -
what exactly do you mean by "wood" boxcars? If you are lumping
together both single-sheathed and double-sheathed boxcars, it's a huge
mistake. While these cars may appear similar in function to the
untrained eyes of many modelers, single-sheathed and double-sheathed
boxcars are at least a generation apart technology-wise.
