In 1959 the Omaha shops of the Union Pacific designed and built combination door boxcars to add to the then current fledgling 50' combination boxcar fleet.  This class of boxcar was the largest combination boxcar that Omaha built at 800 strong along with the almost identical BC-50-6 class of 300 cars for a total of 1100 cars being built in 1959 and 1960. The utility of the 15'2" door opening afforded the UP a very flexible workhorse for their growing 50' fleet. Mainly employed in forest products trade like lumber, plywood, pulpboard and paper, they also were used in other diverse service for bagged minerals, feeds, machinery, brick, brass, copper or aluminium ingot service. They were free-runners so these are just a few examples of anything anywhere cars.
