F-70-84 Flat Cars

A roster of the F-70-84 class flat cars is provided as follows:

	
	SP 518000-518199
	

These cars were built in 5-6/1979 by Bethlehem Steel Corp. (lot 3400-498) and featured 89'-4" loading platforms. They were originally equipped with enclosed Portec/Paragon bi-level auto racks with mesh doors. They were later rebuilt radial clamshell doors.

Two notable graduates of this class are SP 518101 and 518160 which became RBBX 84711 & 84712 respectively for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus train in 1992-93.

In 1993-94 a group of 117 of these cars (and possibly some ex SSW cars) became TTGX 983490-983607. They were reracked and assigned to TTX class BSH13. They were equipped with racks from a variety of roads. It appears that they may have had GTTX reporting marks for a while prior to TTGX.
