The Galveston, Harrisburg & San Antonio is part of the SP Atlantic system, also known as the Texas Lines. Box car No. 9133 was built in the early 1880s (date unknown) by the Barney & Smith company, one of the major car builders of that period. The 28 foot box car is typical of the thousands built in the early 1800s. While externally, the car is a near twin to SP of California No. 14366, the internal framing of the car is quite different. The car was apparently sold to the Nevada Copper Belt around 1910, and later placed on the ground in Mason, near the engine house. It remained in that location until 1991, when it was moved to the Railroad Museum by the National Guard.
