Santa Fe received 4,000 cars from AC&F, Pullman and Standard Steel in 1924 and another 1,000
visually identical Bx-6 cars from Pullman in 1925. All were delivered with plate steel doors
were soon strengthened with braces. By the
1930`s corrugated doors were replacing the plate doors but the latter could be seen for many
years. In the 1940`s AB brakes were applied. Cars ran into the 1960`s. Some cars were rebuilt to carry stock and some were insulated for ice and
