That last series had almost 15,000 cars in service in 1956...
it might be a good choice for a "typical" boxcar based on the
1937 design.
Doug, the 252250-267210 "series" is many different series from
different builders at different times. None of them are exactly
like the 1937 AAR box car or the modified 1940 design either.
