	@ = rebuilt with 10' sliding doors
	# = rebuilt with 12' plug doors
	* = rebuilt with original double doors retained


These 50'-7" box cars were built by FMC-GBEC in 1972 and featured 8'+8' doors as above, Hydra Cushion underframes, non-terminating ends, AEI label, AAR single-panel COTS and 5258 ft3 capacity. Some of these cars had the left hand door painted yellow to signify paper service.

Many cars of this class were repainted and renumbered as Golden West Service cars. At the time of rebuilding the original double doors were changed to either a single 10' sliding door or 12' plug door or not altered. Some of the cars with new single doors were subsequently re-numbered into a new SP series (230000's) by UP in lieu of into their original numbers.
