These 3-bay, 100 ton, covered hopper cars were built by American Car & Foundry in 1971-72 as above. They featured 4650 ft3 cubic capacity. Quite a number of these cars were rebuilt and repainted into the Golden West Service scheme wearing a variety of reporting marks. Many were renumbered back to their origninal SSW marks and numbers after their leases expired with a minimal patching.
