These 50’ standard box cars with double doors are blue with yellow lettering and run on Roller Bearing
trucks. With a cushioned underframe and DF loaders, these 50’ general purpose boxcars were rebuilt
by C&O in 1963 from 40’ cars and were based on a Pullman Standard design. Painted in the “C&O for
Progress” blue and yellow scheme, they were used through the 1970s before being retired or relegated
to MOW service.
