"I'm wondering how long the USRA Rock Island boxcar lasted in service.
My '56 ORER shows this number to be a stock car."

Actually, the last unrebuilt cars left the roster in the early 1960s.
I'm on the road and can't check my ORERs; the January 1955 ORER shows
430 cars in the 155000-157499 series.
