B-70-5 Box Cars

A roster of the B-70-5 class box cars is provided as follows:

	SP 672950-673199	DF loaders
	SSW 21100-21199		Car Pac loaders

These 50'-1" insulated box cars were all built to the same basic design by PC&F in 1960-61 and featured 9'-0" Youngstown plug doors, Hydra-Cushion underframes, and 4574 ft3 capacity. Some of the Cotton Belt cars were later rebuilt as B-70-5R's. Drawings of these cars can be found in the 1961 Car Builders' Cyclopedia and in the May 1985 issue of Model Railroader (Gordon Odegard.)
