Good Evening All,Built by Canadian Car & Foundry in 1/1948, and other than the double doors — and the end doors, which were unique to this particular series of steel automobile cars on CNR — these cars were fairly standard Canadian boxcars. There were originally 500 cars, and beginning about 1967 began to be renumbered into other series (593000-593099 & 740000-740361, and subsequently into the 595000-595999 series).
I don't know of any article on this series in particular — one of the articles on my to-do list is a history of CN's steel automobile cars, as it was one topic that Stafford Swain did not cover.
As for CN cars in general, try the below weblink...
