B-100-27 Box Cars

A roster of the B-100-27 class box cars is provided as follows:


	SP 674900-675099

	CRLE 10300-10399?	(Champion International Corp.)

These 50'-2" insulated box cars were built by PC&F in 1971. They featured 5027 ft3 capacity, Hydra Cushion underframes and a 10'-0" door opening. They were initially assigned to tin plate loading.

It appears as though some of these cars were either built seperately and also given this class, or repainted as CRLE cars for Champion International Corporation. They were stenciled "return empty to Sheldon TX" and carried newsprint. Some or all were eventually transferred to Mahoning Valley Ry. with MVRY reporting marks and the same numbers. Any help on identifying the history of these cars would be appreciated.
