SP C-50-5 bay window cabooses are survivors. Built in 1974, these cabooses received a few modifications in the late 1970s while they saw service on the SP. These cars represent one of the few surviving classes that can be spotted to this day. SP #1971 currently survives on the modern NWP in Northern California.
