Re: Stock Cars Converted From Box Cars

And the Rock Island from single-sheathed box cars. (And interestingly later converted [MKT] stock cars to box cars by lining with plywood, as did ATSF with some of its own stock cars, although both probably after the period covered by this list.)

I know the B&O and the Wabash did it. The B&O covered M26 box cars and the Wabash convered single sheath wood cars. Perhaps the PRR and who else did this? I suppose unlike western railrods, eastern roads did not warrant capital expenditures on new cars for this dwindling traffic? Or, did some western roads convert cars too?
