New UP Boxes ready for loading
Author: bluesman

These 2 new UP high-cube 60 ft boxes are ready for loading wood products on the former UP Joseph Branch. Spotted at La Grande 9/18/22.  No trespassing artist work....yet.

OOPs. Should have been on the Western Board. I guess I can post there too.

Interesting that the reporting marks and herald are at the top of the side. Out of reach of taggers?

That's the general idea.

Two or more almost identical new cars with BKTY on the northbound through Modesto that passed during the Friday lunch break at the SPH&TS meeting.

The entire colllection of UP and BKTY cars of this new "TBOX-type" design have different number series - yes indeed, with marks printed UP HIGH to avoid graffiti coverage over the reporting marks.

Union Pacific's cars are 700000-700499, and BKTY's begin at 160000 -- but I don't know how high the BKTY's fleet is being numbered.
