These 50'-7" double door box cars were built by Pacific Car & Foundry in 1972 & 1974 and featured 8'+8' Youngstown sliding doors, dreadnaught ends, Hydra Cushion underframes and 5258 ft3 capacity.

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.
