You mean the 'straight timber solebar'  style D&RG flats of  20 ton capacity, 30 ft long, and built from 1887?

Robert Sloan's book shows them to have normal planks no shiplap or such; there are both photos and drawings of them.  I think that will be to allow the rain/snow to drain through the small gaps between the planks.

Wayne Spence did a very comprehensive 3 part series (including  better drawings)  on the D&RGW 6000 series flatcars - it is at the following link http://archive.mylargescale.com/articles/articles
