"The 1927 Great Northern car diagrams show the 8000-8499 series as
double sheathed with 8 trussrods; built by H&B; with underframes
built by Streator Car co in 1925 and that the cars were rebuilt by
Great Northern in 1925 and 1926. The diagram notes that that cars
were rebuilt from series 205000 to 208452 and 220000 to 220855."
