Greenville Steel Car built 150 lot 951-F 53'-6" flatcars for the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie in 1964, numbered 600-749. These cars featured an unusual cushion arrangement consisting of four draft gear, Barber cushion tubes, and a block of rubber in the center of the car. In 1965, the railroad reconfigured 50 cars taken from 600-699, adding skids and covers for transporting coil steel while renumbering them 400-449. Many, if not all, of the remaining cars quickly had 12" high bulkheads added on the ends. They could be seen all over the country carrying various loads such as steel products and electrical transformers. Some of the bulkheads then began to be removed from cars in the late 1970s/early 1980s. The cars ran at least into the 1990s.
Cars were delivered in black paint with oval NYC system logos. Some were likely painted deepwater green with Penn Central logos during that railroad's existence. Following the P&LE's independence at the formation of Conrail, cars continued to be painted deepwater green, but without the logo of a parent company. Finally, P&LE returned to black in the mid-1980s for repaints of these cars.
Cars 600-699 rode on Barber S-2-C trucks: we recommend Moloco TR-7088/7110.
Cars 700-749 rode on ASF A-3 trucks: we recommend Tahoe 110/210 or Tangent 106/100.
