N&W built door and a half boxcars, closely following the USRA Single Sheathed design, and classified them BL; later, some of the cars were converted to single door boxcars and classified BLa; eventually, some of the BL and BLa cars were converted to stock cars, Class SK.  These cars had a Climax radial roof.

Here is what the ends looked like:

Hope this helps.

Andy, the WP stock car would be a stand-in at best based on a comparison of the diagonal braces.

This car appears to have been repurposed from a door and 1/2 box car going by the diagonals on each side of the door. This car looks a lot like the WP 40' stock cars, also rebuilds from a boxcars. If the ends are similar, this could be a fun alternate for
the WP car. New door should not be too difficult. The roofs seem to be the same. Big question is the ends...
