Richard or others, did Santa Fe have other classes of this car,
please?

No. The 200 Ft-V class cars were the Santa Fe's only AAR 70 ton flat
cars, and those were actually war emergency cars delivered in 1944
(though the difference between the recommended practice and war
emergency designs isn't an issue for modelers, since it was just the
replacement of metal floor stringers with wood). After the war, the
Santa Fe went to cast steel flat cars with GSC one-piece castings
(classes Ft-W, Ft-3, Ft-5, etc.).
