Road Numbers SSW 30018
These 40' box cars with plug doors are painted box car red with white and blue Cotton Belt Route "Blue Streak" logos and white lettering. They were built in January 1958 by Pacific Car & Foundry and serviced in December 1977. They run on Roller Bearing trucks. Cars in this series are equipped with Pullman-Standard Compartmentizer gates and fixtures. In recent years Cotton Belt has been essentially a division of the Southern Pacific though its equipment is still lettered "Cotton Belt."
