Mel Perry asked:
"can anyone identify the mopac boxcar
in the photo, it appears to be a 1937 car?"

R+3/4 improved Dreadnaught end, so definitely not a prewar boxcar.  MP 38372, from MP 37975-38524, built 11-58, details on Hawkins spreadsheet here:

To the left is the end of PRR X43A #603117, built circa 1952, and 9 years later, desperately in need of new paint.
