This 50’ rib side box car with plug door was built in August of 1979 as a class BX 195. When a fleet of 151 of these cars were reweighed and painted, only 56227 received this ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ appearance. With black roof and ends, the right side wears the correct box car red color. The other red paint was incorrectly added to the side left of the door; The red paint shade is only for cars equipped with ‘Shock Control.’ The large white rectangle with the ‘XF FOOD LOADING ONLY’ designation means that this car was assigned to food service.
