History: Santa Fe ordered 100 (37290-37389) of these cars in 1939. The last 25 of these had Preco fans installed. These cars were not specifically intended for frozen food service. If not particularly frozen food service, then what? Well, there's frozen juice, flowers, wine, fish and other commodities which were high volume, low weight, making the 50 foot cars more suitable.

All were delivered with a Super Chief slogan and early straight line map opposite. Of course, when they were repainted at various times, typically ten years out, they would have gotten any of the Ship and Travel slogans (post 1947), and after 1959, the Big Circle Herald.
