DRGW 60000-60036 6=7-1954 silver DRGW 60037-60046 1959 silver DRGW 60047-60076 6-1961 silver w/ black ends NOTE: 60037, 60047, 60052, 60064 were converted from post-war 67500-67999 series with Improved Dreadnaught ends. All other cars were converted from the 68000-69899 series with pre-war Drednaught ends.
These 40'-0" "Cookie Box" cars were converted from two series of Pressed Steel Car Co. box cars. All cars except the four noted above were from 68000-69899. The remaining four cars were from 67500-67999. Most cars were painted silver, except a few (60028 and others) were painted white. This paint scheme has been very popular with modelers, but as with other popular schemes has been offered on a variety of incorrect box car bodies. Externally, the conversion process added only a vent at the top center of each end. Internally, it consisted of stripping out the wood interior wall and end lining, adding insulation and a new lining, and adding hinged double doors in the door opening behind the original sliding steel door.
