Neither is a star on the car, indicating it's not to be occupied account no toilet facilities. . .

>Further, N&W had sold a RPO to the Florida East Coast Railway at that time, so it's unclear why it sold a car then turned around and bought a similar one.

My understanding is that the cars sold to FEC went circa 1960 - 1961, returning to the N&W 1966, according to the "N&W Color Guide".

Also, it is worth noting that the mailbag hooks are not on the car, so the car likely was being used for either storage mail or package service. Thanks for sharing that shot... I had no idea such a transaction had occurred.
