25000 ATSF Topeka built Fe-34 50' XM Double Plug 15-6 Door, undec kit


In 1964 the Santa Fe Topeka Shops started to build one of their most successful general purpose boxcar designs. They chose the very versatile double plug design to fill the duties of the XM fifty-foot fleet. Being the standard 50' boxcar for Santa Fe in the sixties and seventies. Between Fe-33 and -42 classes 2050 cars were manufactured up to 1969. The main feature the Fe-34 class carried was Lading Band Anchors and a mix of wooden and Nailable Steel Floors. All had the famous Super SHOCK CONTROL cushioned underframe. The design adherence to the Plate B clearance standard translated to unlimited service to all rail lines in the USA, Canada and Mexico.
