Anyone have any recollections/photos of these two hacks? #48-#49 :-)

Not these two, but PRR had quite a fleet of them for wreck train service, each painted gray.

The article above indicates c.1912 for the build date of the original outside braced boxcars. Here's a zoom on the LIRR #48 NX-23 with its original 8-13 build date. Image
