H-100-39 Hopper Cars

A roster of the H-100-39 class hopper cars is provided as follows:


	SP 496450-496699	built 7-8/1980

	Golden West numbers:	CRLE 539000
				CRLE 539002-539014
				CRLE 539030-539038
				GVSR 539800-539808

	UP numbers:		SP 497000-497002 (ex 496544, 496452, 496517)
				SP 497003-497005 (planned but not done)

These hopper cars were built by American Car & Foundryin 7-8/1980. They featured 4650 ft3 cubic capacity. Around 30 of these cars were sent through the Golden West Service program (see above.) Also, after the UP/SP merger in 1996, the UP repainted and renumbered a handfull of 4650 ft3 AC&F hoppers into the 497000 series. They were plain grey with the UP shield in the upper right hand corner and 14" reporting marks and numbers. I got to see one (SP 497002, ex 496517) on July 7, 2010 in Erath, LA. See below.
