Re: to UP fans: -B-50-25 Express Box - converting "back" to normal box car?


The fact that these cars were significantly shorter (lower height) than standard boxcars of their era hasn't been emphasized enough here.  I would point out, since none of the photos here even really shows that, that the B-50-25 is visually quite different than any typical steel freight service boxcar of the late thirties.  I can't quote its exact inside height, but it would be very obvious in a train.
