This 50' standard box car with 8' plug door, no roofwalk and short ladders is aluminum with orange sides and runs on Bettendorf trucks. These all-steel insulated boxcars were built at the Omaha shops and added to the roster in July 1955. They were equipped with DF loaders and assigned to series 499000-499099. Overhauled and repainted in 1968, this car continued to serve until the late 1980s.
