Double sheathed, door-and-a-half design.

One of 500 cars (Series 65201-65700) ordered in 1926 from Pullman. There were other series of Fe-R cars as well.

Pullman applied lines above the reporting marks and below the car numbers, not a typical Santa Fe practice.

The Class Fe-R cars were rebuilt into steel sheathed Class Bx-40 boxcars during World War II. A total of 1,208 Fe-R cars in three groups were so converted.
