locked What car does this drawing show?

George Eichelberger

Attached is one of the very few linens in the SRHA collection that does not have a title block or date. It is obviously a box car but the odd strapping on the sides of the car suggests it is a wood side car with bracing on the outside. The drawing date is probably prior to 1920 and it’s a 36’ car so we know it is not all-steel.

Because we have the linen (original drawing) it does not appear to be a proposed design from a car builder. Any ideas?
