Courtesy of Steve Crise, a Jack Whitmeyer photo from the Pacific Railroad Society Museum archives of a wrecked Santa Fe automobile boxcar at Colton, CA.

This was a Class Fe-23 boxcar (number series 6786-6999), one of 214 former Fe-S cars rebuilt by the Topeka Shops in 1941. The Fe-S automobile boxcars were built in 1928.
