Finding a build date on a rail car

I'm trying to date a video I found on my HD. The train in question is not in my notes anywhere but here is what I do know: Train is a westbound CP railrunner on the then CR main at Ogden Dunes. The train has a dozen or so brand new UP covered hoppers in it. Figured if I could get a build date on the cars I could at least get a month and year on when the video was shot. None of the rail pictures sites on the web had build dates on the cars. Zooming in on a picture didn't help either. Anyone got a Freight Car Registry from 1995-2000? That is my estimated date range of when I shot this video. One of the car numbers is UP 90849. Any help would be appreciated.
