GTW 11498 is part of a 15 car group numbered 11484-11499. According to the notes, box express cars in this series had small doors on each end for passage from one car to another, except:  cars 11490-11494 had solid ends and 11495-11499 had full end doors as pictured. Info from the March 1966 Offical Register of Passenger Train Equipment.

Can anyone provide information about these three GTW boxcars? The 50-ft
former automobile car appears to be in express service at the time of
the photo. The steel underframe car also appears to have been built for
auto service based upon the 1-1/2 door opening. I am not sure the plug
door one is in the STMFC era.
