Road Number HSW 1036
PER DIEM SERIES #2
This 50’ rib side box car with single door and no roofwalk is painted red with yellow band and door
and runs on Barber Roller Bearing trucks. The Helena Southwestern was a short line that operated
in Arkansas and routinely interchanged with Missouri Pacific. In the 1980’s they found themselves
needing new cars that they didn’t have the budget for. The railroad utilized the Per Diem program to add
modern, safe freight cars to their system.
