What is the rough date that the X29F box cars went into service? Would these have been in service during the circle keystone era? 

My knowledge of the PRR is quite limited thus this rather basic question.

Thanks & Happy Modeling,

This is a dedicated service PRR X29F in appliance service to GE, with STB load restraining equipment.  They were specially rebuilt from X29 u/f’s expressly for this purpose.

GE's Appliance Park in Louisville KY got a dedicated group of high-cube cars, not all from just one road.  Park opened in 1951.
