Not only that. The late Terry Metcalfe's UP Modeler, Vol 1, shows photos ofThe 50 cars numbered 5700-5749, along with the 450 "Overnight" box cars of Class B-50-24, were separately equipped with steam and signal lines, tight-lock couplers, and marker light brackets, painted SP Dark Olive with Dulux Gold lettering, and classed "BX" for head-end service.
