Height: 10 ft. 6 in.
Ends: 4/4 Improved Dreadnaught ends with the rolling pin taper
Sides: 10 panel riveted
Doors: 7 foot Youngstown, with side reinforcements
Roof: Rectangular panel
 Further reading and info:
There is a Bob's Photos photo of D&TSL car no. 3019, c. '65. It had 4/4 Improved Dreadnaught ends with the rolling pin taper, I think a rectangular panel roof, and a 6 or 7 foot wide Youngstown door with wide recessed seams. The car had 10 panel riveted sides, with a side sill reinforcement under the door (probably a later addition). The car was an orange-yellow with red lettering, and possibly a galvanized roof. Over the reporting marks was "Expressway For Industry" slogan.

In Classic Freight Cars, Vol. I, there was a James Marcus c. '82 photo of car no. 3010. This car, at this point, had been rebuilt with roof hatches to carry loose granulars, classified LC. In 1958, a total of 11 cars had been so converted (nos. 3005, 3008, 3010, 3012, 3023, 3027, 3045-3049).

Just one more question for the time being...

...anyone know where I might find information or pictures of the D&TS
3000-3049 series of boxcars? All I've managed to find so far is a picture
of an N scale model.
