These 50'-7" box cars were all built by PC&F in 1973 and featured 8'+8' SSD/YSD doors, dreadnaught ends, Hydra Cushion underframes and 5258 ft3 capacity.

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.
