Topeka shops installed a 10-inch travel 'Shock Control' sliding center sill under frame in a Bx-66 Class box car in June 1958. Numbered, 10001 and re-classed as a Bx-77 with a new Indian red and black paint scheme with a large Santa Fe herald and new advertising slogan 'DF with Shock Control' splashed across the car side, this car ushered in a new era in box car construction. From then on, nearly all new classes of Santa Fe box cars were fitted with either a Shock Control, or a Super Shock Control under frame, introduced in 1961. The last box cars built new for Santa Fe were 200 XF food loading car in Class Bx-211 out-shopped at Santa Fe's Topeka shops in 1981.

During this period a number of older classes were rebuilt, often to ease a box car shortage at the time, and others bought used from leasing companies. And over the years many specialized cars were built for and assigned to shippers, especially automobile and appliance manufacturers and breweries, and others were designated for food loading, flour loading and other specialized lading, like such as Perlite.
