Didn't the Seaboard or some other Southern road have wagon-tops too? Ex-B&O cars by chance?

Here's a bit on the Seaboard cars:

Just bit of continuing information.

For those that wonder about a time frame and range for the wagontops, this was posted on the B&O group...

 

Can someone tell me what scheme is "Wartime Kuhler"?
