Pennsylvania Railroad ordered just 16 of these heavy duty wellcars built by Greenville between 1938 and 1942. The cars were all welded with a wooden lower well deck - the planks of which were placed both longways and sideways across the deck. The cars ran on 3 axle Buckeye trucks.

The cars, with a high tonnage and deep wells were in demand across the US to transport large electrical equipment and large castings etc.. The cars were numbered 47080 - 470095 and became Penn Central and then Conrail's 768121-768136. They lasted in service until the 1980's.

Five very similar cars were also built for the C&O. Cars 80975-80980 were drawn and described by Bob Hundman in Mainline Modeler Feb 1989.

The cars were redesigned in April 2019 with a lower profile
- to match the prototypical ride height.
The redesigned ends are now available
