The 2500 SK-Ks were built with Caswell drop bottoms. Beginning in 1935 and continuing to 1940, 1065 of the SK-Ks were rebuilt and renumbered into the 54300-54499 series. This rebuilding removed the roof hatches and Caswell drop bottom along with new door and reinforced sides.

Notes from Larry Occhiello's Santa Fe book, Listing Of Freight Cars By Class & Car Number 1906-1991, indicate one of the three series of Sk-K livestock cars (54300-54499) had sold bottoms.
