It looks like an Fe-21 class car rebuilt in 1940 from an Fe-S class car. They were numbered 7350-7399 and all 50 cars were lettered with the Grand Canyon Line slogan. These were 50 foot single door cars and the first 5 cars had end doors on them. There is two good photos of them in the book "Furniture and Automobile Box Cars" by Richard Hendrickson published by the Santa Fe Railway Historical and Modeling Society on pages 82 and 83.Charlie SlaterTo: STMFC@yahoogroups.comFrom: fleeta@verizon.netDate: Sat, 15 Dec 2007 23:09:03 -0500Subject: Re: [STMFC] Santa Fe car spotters

The first few digits of the car number are not visible and I'm not
familar enough with SF cars to ID it.
