F-70-58A Flat Cars

A roster of the F-70-58A class flat cars is provided as follows:

	
	SP 517000-517118
	
	

These cars were built in 1970 by AC&F and featured 89'-4" loading platforms. These cars were originally equipped with Vert-a-Pac superstructures built by St. Louis Car. By 1980, the superstructures had been removed and enclosed tri-level racks had been installed in their place. Drawings of these cars with the Vert-a-Pac structures can be found in the October 1971 issue of Model Railroader magazine.
