Even the Pennsy never dreamed of portals this big:

It appears to ride on real freight car trucks. The opposite side had square windows that look plausible for a real caboose. So, what is it, really? A real caboose that has been butchered on one side, or a boxcar made into a caboose?

Here is the end, it is along the OCSR apparently. Those curved grab irons weren't used on boxcars.

I have it as being a former BN caboose that has seen some modifications.

Here's a photo I found of the other side, which is the unaltered side

And a view of the altered side

It certainly has the right underframe to be an International Car EV caboose.
