This 40’ standard box car with single door, full ladders and no roofwalk is brown with white lettering and runs on Bettendorf trucks. Built in 1953 as CP 265050, it was converted into an icebreaker/clearance device car in 1984 and renumbered 410010, within a group of 10 similar cars. To prevent impact damage to revenue railcars and lading, this car featured large vertical frames to physically clear icicles from the inside of tunnels and low bridges. The phenomenon is more prevalent during spring and fall, when freeze/thaw cycles allow for the formation of large and damaging icicles.
