Hello all,

 

Does anyone have information on USNX boxcars built at the Burlington’s Havelock Shops in the early 1940s shown in the attached image?

Very unusual doors, with the added section to the right. Don’t recall seeing that elsewhere.

The door on the two cars to the right appeared to have had the doors extended.

The door extension is uncommon but not unheard of. This was a typical solution to the problem of a door opening wider than the standard vendor doors could handle, but not wide enough for a double-door arrangement.
