Bill;

Given that photo was taken at Havelock, NE on the CB&Q, it is likely a
CB&Q Class XA-7/8 40' Single sheathed Automobile box being rebuilt (they
had 5/5/5 ends). - Think Sunshine's CB&Q 22.6 Kit in HO, or Rails
Unlimited Resin body in O scale.

Here is a more convenient TinyURL for the photo:

I don't know if this will work but this is the link to a very
interesting photo of what looks like a 50-ton USRA boxcar interior
showing the car being repaired or re-sheathed. It is on the Newberry
Library website.
