A roster of the B-70-73 class box cars is provided as follows:


	SP 244150-244649	(to BN 223900-223999)

These 50'-7" double door box cars were built by FMC (lot 17582) in 1-2/1974 and featured 8'+8' Youngstown sliding doors, non-terminating ends, AEI label, single lube plate and 5283 ft3 capacity. These cars were NOT equipped with cushion underframes.

A group of 100 cars of this class was rebuilt by Gunderson and sold to the BN at some point after 1991 as BN 223900-223999. All 100 cars had complete roof replacements with Stanrail 'Redi-Roof' panels by Gunderson prior to delivery to the BN.
