Thanks for your explanation that clarifies these cars. Another item
that has added to my confusion of these cars is a photo of WAB 86694
taken by Col. Chet McCoid in 1956. The build date of the car clearly
has "BUILT 9-40" stencils. Presumably this was a mistake.
Also, the photo of WAB 86694 from the second group shows a 7-panel
Superior door, whereas a photo of WAB 86271 from the first group built
in 1942 shows a Youngstown door. A photo of NJI&I 4145 shows a
Youngstown door. Do you have data on the door assignments for the cars
in series 86000-86874?
Thanks in advance.
