The increased volume of coiled steel transportation gave rise to a new
purpose-built freight car. Previously, rolls of coiled-steel had generally
traveled in specially equipped gondolas. In the 1960s a lighter type of
car emerged specifically for hauling coils of steel in an integral trough.
The car type gained popularity and eventually over 17,000 were built.
This model replicates a 42' design with a distinctive fishbelly side sill.
