Just noticed on the Trains Newswire that an SP sugar beet car has been given by the WP Museum in Portola to the Arizona Railway Museum. Well, the car should last a long time in the Arizona climate. According the WPRM website, there are three sugar beet cars at Portola.

CHANDLER, Ariz. The Arizona Railway Museum is raising funds to move a former Southern Pacific sugar beet car from California to the museum. The car is an ex-SP 40-foot wood-sided gondola used exclusively for sugar beet transport, and is currently located at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum in Portola, Calif.
