the early Sixties, Evans Products saw a need for specialized cars
to transport coiled steel.
The existing cars at the time were often 70-ton specially equipped
mill gondolas. The new
commodity-specific coil-steel car were built with a 100-ton capacity
using a trough frame and
body. The early designs were refined during the 1960s and eventually
Evans adopted a 48-foot
length as standard. Production lasted well into the 1970s.
