Why is it called Carsiding?

Car siding is wood paneling scored with a V-shaped groove. Its original use dates to the heyday of the railroads in the mid-19th century, when this treatment was used to line the insides of boxcars, particularly those that hauled produce.

Last night, I finally mounted original pieces of ET&WNC caboose 505 and boxcar 434 into a shadow box frame. I attached them to the back board with short wood screws screwed in from behind. I then printed out photos of each car onto cardstock and glued them in place with rubber cement. I took down some stuff that was hanging above my chalkboard and placed the finished frame there. You'd see them upon walking down the hall headed into the room.
I still have that 19” long piece of the 434, so I think I’m going to run a wire behind that to hang on the wall over the original spike I also have framed.
