Golden West Service Freight Cars

Golden West Service was a partnership between Southern Pacific, Gunderson and The Greenbriar Lines to remanufacture thousands of freight cars, mostly if not all of Southern Pacific/SSW origin. The cars carry the reporting marks of a few short line railroads: Ventura County Railway (VCY), Galveston Railroad (GVSR) and Coe Rail, Inc (CRLE).
