B-100-40 Box Cars

A roster of the B-100-40 class box cars is provided as follows:


	SP 656200-656449

	Golden West numbers:	VCY 140000-140018

These 50'-7" loader equipped box cars were built by PC&F in 1976. They featured 5195 ft3 capacity, Hydra Cushion underframes, half-height waffle sides, Car Pac loaders and a 12'-0" door opening.

A group of 50 cars from this class and B-100-43 were purchased by Amtrak during 1997 for conversion to express boxcars as AMTK 70000-70049. They were converted by Gunderson in Springfield, OR in July and August 1997. They appear to have been originally painted green, but some also wear sport a silver body with a blue stripe. More info and photos can be found at Chris Hebner's Amtrak page.
