THE PACIFIC CAR & FOUNDRY (PC&F) 6033 CUBIC CAPACITY BOXCAR
The first order of PC&F 6033 boxcars went to the Southern Pacific in 1966, and the Union Pacific, Western Pacific, St. Louis Southwestern, and Southern Pacific railroads received new and additional lots in 1967. In the early service years, PC&F 6033 was primarily employed in appliance and paper-loading assignments. Now operating for privates, many of these cars are still in service today--some of which continue in patched SP/SSW and Alaska Railway paint schemes.
The ExactRail PC&F 6033 features the classic, double-sheathed construction, 3/3/3/1 dreadnaught ends, diagonal panel, overhanging roof, and single 10’-6” YSD sliding doors and Hydra-Cushion underbody detailing of the prototype. ExactRail also accurately matches the 70-ton Barber S-2 trucks or ASF Ride Control trucks of the prototypes.
SOUTHERN ILLINOIS RAILCAR (SIRX) EX-ARR PATCH SCHEME:
Southern Illinois Railcar acquired a group of PC&F 6033 boxcars from the Alaska Railway. These cars feature a slightly faded color of Alaska blue with re-stenciled SIRX reporting marks. Many SIRX cars are still in service today, some near the ExactRail facilities in Utah working out of the Morton Salt plant near the Great Salt Lake.
