History: The 1970s saw a shift in general purpose boxcars from 40 foot to 50 foot exterior post designs. The incentive per diem regulations (IPD) made it very attractive for railroads to acquire large fleets of boxcars. Along with the larger companies like Pullman Standard and American Car & Foundry (ACF), Southern Iron & Equipment Co. (SIECO) also jumped into the 50 foot boxcar business. The SIECO railcars were recognizable by the "gap" between the roof and walls of the car.
The Southern Iron & Equipment Company (SIECO), a family-owned business located in Atlanta, Georgia, was a major reconditioner of locomotives in the period ca. 1900-1960. The company purchased locomotives, refurbished them, and then sold them. In addition, the company did repair and reconditioning work on behalf of various railroads. It also manufactured a number of rail cars.
