This car is a former Santa Fe class Fe-23. It was rebuilt at Topeka, Kansas in 1941 from class Fe-S cars (General American Transportation Corp. 1928 built, wood body, steel under frame and end cars). 249 cars were constructed numbers 6750-6999. The last of the class was retired in 1974. Both the Fe-22 and Fe-23 class cars had a 50 ton capacity. The major difference as built was the Fe-22 class had 1" interior wood lining and the Fe-23 class had 13/16" interior wood lining. The Cu Ft for the Fe-22 was 4927 and the Fe-23 had 4949. Both classes of cars were used to transport auto's, trucks, farm equipment and heavy machinery. Some of the cars in both classes were modified to carry aircraft parts and assemblies. The as built paint job on both classes of cars was: sides, ends, trucks and underframe - mineral brown, roof - anti slip matte black, lettering and stenciling - white All the cars received the large system map to the right of the double doors on the right side of the car with the slogan "ship Santa Fe all the way". The left side of the cars to the right of the double doors received one of four name train slogans, Scout, El Capitan, Super Chief, or Chief. The paint scheme changed many times over the years and there are too many to mention. Half of the Fe-S class was leased to the NYC between 1938 and 1939. They painted over the ATSF with NYC and painted out the Santa Fe on the herald, otherwise, they were not changed. Previous owners: Continental Oil Company used end loading capabilities for grease drums Sante Fe used for transport of Crosly automobiles.
