These cars were built by GBEC in 1966. Some were built with bulkheads for plasterboard loading. While others were built as plain flats. Distance between bulkheads as shown above. Also, some of the bulkhead cars were rebuilt and repainted as Golden West Service cars and later re-stenciled as SP cars after the Golden West leases expired. Also of note is car SP 509184 which was converted to crushed auto service ca. 1970 as part of SP's DASH (Disposal of Scrap Auto Hulks) program.
