These 50'-7" box cars were all built by FMC-GBEC in 1973. They featured 8'+8' doors as noted, non-terminating ends, ACI label, single lube plate and Hydra Cushion underframes.

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.

The new Intermountain 50' 5258 ft3 box car will model this class nicely.
