According to the diagram sheet in the 1952 Passenger car diagram book there were 58 cars in that class numbered between 4652-4840.  Originally built by AC&F in 1925.  There were another 74 of these cars numbered in these series 5653-5848, 6672-6842, 6900-6950.

The latter cars had smooth plywood sides.
