N&W 65216 is a class BJa ventilator car. Lettering style dates it to the late '20s or early-mid '30s, and the car has a replacement Climax radial roof. Lumber is not the first lading one might think of for a vent, but this N&W car and the Seaboard vent behind it were pressed into board service along the way.
