A roster of the B-70-79 class box cars is provided as follows:

	SSW 24250-24399

	Golden West numbers:	VCY 179000-179133

These 52'-6" insulated box cars were built by PC&F in 1979 and featured 14' Youngstown plug doors, Hydra Cushion underframes, load dividers with air bags and 6286 ft3 capacity.

Many cars from this group of cars had their capacities increased from 70 tons to 100 tons and re-painted and re-lettered for Golden West Service. They were placed in the VCY 179xxx series. They were assigned the new Golden West Service class designation of B-100-72. There never was such a class assigned on the SP proper.
