Re: Photo: Early Santa Fe Boxcars At Eskridge Depot

Allan Smith

The Bx-U boxcars were built in 1890 series 40948-41440. They were originally built as Fe-D Furniture cars and given the number series 80400-81010, soon renumbered into the 6095-6600 and 6601-7200 series. In 1906 they were reclassified into boxcars becoming classes Bx-T and Bx-U almost all gone from the roster by the early 1920's. So the date on this photo is somewhat dubious.

Interesting in that 41xxx series does not appear in the 1901 or 1905 ORER.
They do appear in the Mach 1907 ORER
