Clark,
The only photo I can find from that series is dead on broadside, but...
from the previous number series, a nice 3/4 view of 715524 reveals a 4/5 Dreadnaught A end.  To complicate things, there's a lumber door, a common MILW boxcar feature. The car seems to match the dimensions and appearance of the higher numbered series you asked for.
Hooper this helps,

That seems so typical of Denny to make his own tools!

But I think this changed over time. 
716296 photo at LaCrosse March 1941 with CTSE reporting marks.
716495 with  6-54 reweigh date has MILW.
Unfortunately I can't check these in the ORER at this time.

Hi, Clark:

All the images that I've seen show the 714000-717199 series as having 4/5 Dreadnaught square corner ends.  Sunshine data sheet 57A has a nice end view of 715115, outside of the range you asked about, but from the same series. 

FWIW, the data sheet mentions that the 715600-716499 series had CTSE reporting marks.

94631 appears to be a popular number

The reweigh date on the 94631 photo is 1937. I model 1939, so figured I was safe. Speaking of that photo, here it is along with my version.
I would like to be able to credit the photographer, anyone know who it is and/or what collection it is in?

Running Board Support Sander

Aley, Jeff A
 

Hi Folks,

 

               Yesterday I found an interesting tool that the late Denny Anspach had.  As you can see it is labelled “Roofwalk (sic) support angle sander”.  The end view (I added the yellow lines) tells the story – it’s a strip of wood that was beveled on a table saw.  It has sandpaper applied so that it can be used to make running board supports.

 

               It’s one of those simple things that made me say, “Why did I think of that?”

 

Enjoy,

 

-Jeff

I was looking at the Milwaukee freight car color book and was curious about the ends on the MILW 15600-16999 series box cars. I can't get a good read on the ends in the book photos other than they're dreadnaught with a longer lower panel. Accurail offers something 'close', but I have no idea what they ends are. Can someone offer me some advice on the ends? 

Thanks you,
Clark Propst

I think the sign says:
1st line - Car Under Test
2nd line - This Car Not Load - not sure about this one 
3rd line - Canadian National Railways

Canadian railways would often put wood over some of the openings in livestock cars in the winter due to the cold temperatures so that the cattle would retain some heat in the car.

Bill I have followed many of your car builds and have re-reviewed them many times as I do my own builds. Your ideas and skill will be used by many now and in the future. I wish you strength in this fight that you may have the strength and faith to give it a kick in the ass. Fight on and model on.

We oft forget to celebrate a good, vibrant life and your decision to celebrate your life is brilliant!  It is much more fun to celebrate than mourn.  I have harvested more rivets under your inspiration than I ever did in all the years before seeing your technique.  For practical purposes, you uncovered the FGEX and its kin BREX and WFEX from obscurity and helped bring their fleet to life in models.   Truss rods forever!   I have benefited greatly from your labor of love and I need to thank you for that.  Life is an adventure that we are blessed with and you have made the most of yours.  Thank you, God bless and do not go quietly into that good night.
