A total of 300 cars were built
by the PRR at Altoona between July 17, 1948, and October 11, 1948, in number
series 253500-253799. Welded construction was used for both the superstructure
and the underframe. The material was high tensile steel. The cars had a plain
welded roof and 14 roof hatches, each with 3 by 3 opening. The metal running
boards were Apex Tri-Lok. There were four bulkheads, creating five bays, each
having two hopper openings measuring 13" by 24". The hopper bottom mechanism
was furnished by Enterprise Railway Equipment Co. The horizontal sliding doors
were hand operated, using a rack and pinion. The trucks were Class 2E-F22A,
made by American Steel Foundries with Type A-3 Ride Control. The couplers were
Type "E" with Imperial rotary bottom operated uncoupling devices.

There were four PRR paint and
lettering schemes on this car. First was the Circle Keystone (CK) as delivered
in Freight Car Color (FCC) with white lettering. Second, some shopped cars
received the gray body color with the CK scheme in black. Third, some had the
Shadow Keystone (SK) with gray body color with black lettering. And lastly,
the Plain Keystone (PK) scheme with gray body color with black lettering was
also used.

In addition to the PRR
schemes, they were also painted in both Penn Central (gray and green) and
Conrail (gray and red) schemes.
