Gondolas: Aggregate Gondola Cars (Agon)

Sand, rock or minerals can be moved productively and efficiently with FreightCar America’s durable, all-steel aggregate gondola car design. FreightCar America aggregate gondola cars feature welded sides. The car design includes clean-out doors at four corners, pinned top chord connections and interior lower slope sheets at ends for ease of cleaning. The center sill assembly incorporates draft arm castings and our patented one-piece cold-rolled center sill, providing strength and durability for your needs.

Aggregate gondola cars are offered in various sizes, and bodies can be all steel or a combination of steel and stainless. They can be created from virtually any standard draft gear donor car.

These features of our Agons can be configured to meet your specific requirements or preferences:

  • Size / capacity
  • Stainless option
  • Brake system
  • Draft system
  • Exterior finish
  • Modification available from coal or small cube car or similar
  • Covered / not covered

As part of our dedication to customer service, any of our railcar products may be further developed to meet the specific characteristics of the bulk or containerized freight being transported — as well as any other customized requirements or specifications required by our clients.

Our commitment to quality and customer services begins with the first customer contact and extends through the life of the railcar. Our Customer Service Department is staffed by a highly qualified and experienced team with the resources to help with any of your service requirements.
