Thanks for sending that photo along Ben.  It is another interesting car with many similar features.  To my eye, that looks like a former ventilated car end, with the louver panels blanked over.   Distinguishing features (from 11754) include the tack board location (more toward the corner), the murphy corrugations protrude outward (rather than inward), and the channel end sill (rather than the sill incorporated into the lower end panel (plus polling pocket)).  

btw, I modified the subject line to focus on this car.

Dear Rob, not my area of knowledge at all, but here is an FEC DS car.  Don't know anything about it.
