Built by the thousands after WWII, most had lots of life left in them when new safety standards were adopted in the mid-1960s to eliminate most freight car running boards. Many roads opted for inexpensive upgrades to bring the cars into compliance, installing short ladders on the A end, while retaining the longer ladder, high brake wheel and a single roof-mounted grab iron on the B end. Running into the 1980s in regular service, some were later reassigned to maintenance-of-way work.
