Introductory Offer!!

This new volume on Santa Fe’s modern box cars starts where John Dobyne’s Santa Fe Railway Rolling Stock Reference Series Volume 4 Santa Fe Boxcars 1869-1953 left off. Begining with the 500 cars Bx-66 Class cars of 1954—one of the last classes of box cars to come lettered from the builders with name train slogans on the car sides—it completes the story of box car development up to the BNSF merger of 1995. This was the colorful Shock Control and Super Shock Control era.

Topeka shops installed a 10-inch travel “Shock Control” sliding center sill underframe in a Bx-66 Class box car in June 1958. Numbered, 10001 and reclassed as a Bx-77 with a new Indian red and black paint scheme with a large Santa Fe herald and new advertising slogan “DF with Shock Control” splashed across the car side, this car ushered in a new era in box car construction. From then on, nearly all new classes of Santa Fe box cars were fitted with either a Shock Control, or a Super Shock Control underframe, introduced in 1961. The last box cars built new for Santa Fe were 200 XF food loading car in Class Bx-211 outshopped at Santa Fe’s Topeka shops in 1981.

Because the appearance of new rolling stock delivered to Santa Fe from the car builders often varied widely from standard Santa Fe painting and lettering practice, a painting and lettering reference by class or groups of similar classes for cars in as-delivered livery, is included in the appendix, along with representative photos in color. 317 Black & White photos, 75 diagrams. Soft cover, spiral bound. more»
