	SSW 62725-62824		

	Golden West numbers:	VCY 147000-147065

These 60'-10" hi-cube, auto parts box cars were built by PC&F in 1979. They featured 7477 ft3 cubic capicity, cushion underframes and 16'-0" door openings. Many of these care were repainted and remarked for VCY as part of the Golden West Service project. After their leases expired, many were restenciled back into their original reporting marks and numbers.

Check out the excellent article on modeling one of these cars in the January 2017 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine by Harry Wong.
