	SP 490100-490499

These 2-bay Center Flow covered hopper cars were built by AC&F as CF2971 cars in 1975. They differed in both length and height from AC&F's previous CF2970 and successor CF2980 cars. There is some confusion due to the same cubic capacity of the previous cars. The CF2971 was only produced for SP and some other roads (C&EI, SL-SF, D&RGW, P&LE and MKT; and a number of private owners) in 1974-75. They are listed as 2970 ft3 cubic capacity in the ORER. They differ from the earlier and later cars as per the following:

These SP cars were used for perlite loading on the Magma Arizona Railroad (MAA reporting marks.) -Chris Butts.
