Conrail's BE55E class consists of a group of 75 FGE boxcars. These cars were purchased in 1974 by, of all companies, General Foods and leased to the EL to serve the General Foods plant in Rochester, NY. The cars were painted blue to denote this non-EL ownership. Their maintenance was handled off-line at FGE's Alexandria, VA facility, where they were given the non-standard yellow or orange paint schemes. Conrail chose to equip these cars with Keystone door-openers as time progressed.
