Developed at the request by S.P. shippers wishing for a 57 feet of clear space on
bulkhead flats to allow full utilization of 70 ton capacity before it "cube" out.  S.P.
paid Gunderson (GBEC) $12,186 each for bulkhead equipped flats and $10,000
for plain flat cars. It took 10 gallons of Sherwin-Williams "Metal to Metal" Freight
Car paint per car. Bulkhead flat cars were routinely pressed into lumber service
even though they were intended for plasterboard service. Delivered in 3/66, 4/66,
5/66 as 125 plain decks and 125 bulkhead-equipped flats . Still in service as UP MOW
cars in ex-Golden West Service blue.
