These 50'-6" insulated box cars were built by PC&F in 1972-73 and featured 6'+8' Youngstown plug doors and Hydra Cushion underframes. For some reason, the SP singled out this class of box cars to receive the new speed lettering scheme. It was the only class of box cars to be so re-painted. We are lucky to have a beautiful HO scale model of this class of cars from Athearn (thanks Uncle Irv!)
