There is a very small date at the bottom right. Under magnification it appears to be 1935.

Not the NP car; these cars were built from N&W Class BL https://www.nwhs.org/archivesdb/detail.php?ID=19339 and Class BLa https://www.nwhs.org/archivesdb/detail.php?ID=20702 boxcars.  These boxcars were "clones" of the USRA single sheathed cars, N&W Class BK https://www.nwhs.org/archivesdb/detail.php?ID=19337

The Cleveland Climas Flexible Radial Roof was used on the BL, BLa and "modernized" BK boxcars.

They're both stock cars with radial steel roofs.  Other than that, not at all.  Do the side by side yourself:

Thanks, Ben.  I have no idea where my CV kit is, and didn’t think to look at the website.
