Well Cars

Between 1986 and 1987, Gunderson built a number of Twin-Stack well cars for Conrail, placing the cars in series CR 795100-795109. However, this car is part of series purchased from Greenbrier. The "A" car in this shot is the first car in a string of 5 cars all with the same car number. Thanks to Chris Carangi of Delaware for the info.
