History: The skeleton car has been a staple in the logging industry since the early part of the century and has appeared on nearly every logging road in the country. Evans Products produced a 65 foot version with three bunks and a 100 ton capacity.

Founded as U.S. Railway Equipment, or U.S. Railway Manufacturing, the name was changed to Evans Railcar Manufacturing in 1964. Evans Products Freight Cars built in the 1960's, 1970's, and 1980's were plentiful in the 1990's and many EP Freight Cars are still around. SIECO became one of their subsidiaries. Evans was purchased by GE Transportation sometime in the 1980s and transformed into a maintenance division.
