AC 238464 at Steelton yard on July 9, 2001. You can see a piece of the original ‘CENTRAL’ lettering to the right of the number, so this particular car is from the 2401-2425 series built new for the ACR in 1975. This was renumbered and rebuilt with side stakes in 1998.

AC 238446 at Cochrane, Ontario on July 16, 2014, one of 70 cars in series 238400-238469 rebuilt in 1998 from cars in the AC 2401-2501 number range in random order.
The orange paint on this car marks it as having been renumbered from a car in the specific series AC 2476-2494, originally built in 1975 for North American Car Co. (then one of the major car leasing/management companies – now part of GE Rail Services) and acquired by the ACR in 1994, possibly via the CN/CNIS 603400-603424 series.
AC 238459 at the Steelton yard RIP track on August 19, 2004. This is one of 70 cars from the 2401-2501 series rebuilt in 1998 by Wisconsin Central with side stakes for handling pulpwood. These cars were randomly rebuilt and renumbered in no particular ordering. The colours on this car indicate its British Columbia Railway heritage, so it was previously one of 50 cars numbered AC 2426-2475 which were acquired in 1980 from BCIT 818450-818519 series.
