>From the old lettering showing through the paint, this was previously a Class Ef Box Express, # 239. According to the March 1965 issue of The Official Register of Passenger Train Equipment there were at that time still 17 cars remaining in the series 220-239. Jim Nichols' N&W Color Guide has a picture of the 220, and states that the 230-239 were built in 1942.

Can anyone provide additional information on the boxcar closest to the photographer? It was stored on the Big Creek Branch in Richlands, VA.
