I was wondering if someone could give me their best guess on what railroad this came from and possibly an age. I have 2 on my property and I am not quite sure at this point what I am going to do with them.

I see that one of the boxcars still has a running board on the roof. These were removed from boxcars sometime in the 70's(?). Maybe one of our members has a more exact date.
I have tried a couple places, but no one seems to want to deal with moving them. They are interesting for sure. Someone took the time to line them with the old old tin ceiling tiles.
