Just ran across this.

Interesting KCS rib side boxcar. Anybody know anything about this? Looks stenciled for some specific service.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Thanks Jason. I did a search, but only came up with the photo for some reason. Operator error I'm sure. I think the WP cars were used in similar service.

I should be noted that all three should have 9' doors and one of the WP cars should have a different end (the different end according to a TO thread).

Yeah, way out of era for me too.

I would imagine, based on the stencil, that it was probably something pressed into non-interline company service at some point long after its revenue life was over.

Also saw on BLW site that N Scale Enthusiast has spent grain boxes now available, should be right up your alley, Dave!

Thanks Rick. Those are very cool.

Unfortunately, I am a Schlitz and Pabst guy, and those were for Miller. I might have to pick one up for an unscheduled stop on the Beer Line!

Agreed. Still cool.
