note 1; "Gothic" styled cars were built of steel, but rivets on the exterior gave the appearance of wood. Usually the windows had an either squared or rounded upper sash. During the period of 1920 - 1927, the plating was modified giving the appearance of a more modern 1920's  built "Heavyweight" steel sleeper. At this time also the upper window sashes would have been plated over.
