B-50-29 Box Cars
A roster of the B-50-29 class box cars is provided as follows:
SP 103600-104099 (to T&NO in 1950's; back to orig #'s in 1960's)
These 40'-6" box cars were all built to the same basic design by SP's Sacremento Shops in 1951 and featured 3782 ft3 capacity, a 7'-0" door opening, 3/4 improved Dreadnought ends, diagonal panel roof and ASF A-3 trucks. The original SP cars were transferred to the T&NO in the 1950's mixed with B-50-28's as T&NO 62250-62999 & 63500-64249. They were renumbered back to their original numbers in the early 1960's as the T&NO was absorbed into the parent SP.
For more information on these cars, see the February and March 1993 issues of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine for an in depth article by Tony Thompson.
