During the early 1990s, the Southern Pacific Railroad’s railcars were in need of repair and the railroad didn’t have the money needed to revitalize the fleet so a deal was struck that involved selling the cars to Greenbrier and then having Gunderson rebuild the cars to be leased back to the SP.

Due to legal reasons, Greenbrier needed to use an actual railroad’s reporting marks so they worked out deals with Galveston Railroad (GVSR), Coe Rail (CRLE), Ventura County Railway (VCY) and even Kansas City Southern (KCS). The cars lost their original SP, SSW and DRGW reporting marks in the process of receiving a bright blue coat of paint along with the yellow and red Golden West Service stacked block logo on the sides.

Over time some cars regained their original reporting marks and some still survive to this day.(credit Trains 21)
