These 50'-2" insulated box cars were built by PC&F in 1965-66. They featured 5050 ft3 capacity, Hydra-Cushion underframes, Car Pac loaders and 10"-0" plug doors. The BKTY cars were part of the Commonwealth Plan, under which the MKT acquired cars that were financed by the SP some sort of way. In any event, the cars were decorated as per MKT practice except the SP class designation was applied to the cars as per SP practice.
