FreightCar America’s boxcar is built to efficiently protect a variety of products including paper rolls, auto/truck parts, and other valuable commodities during shipment.
Our 50’ 6″ and 60′ 9″ plug door boxcars feature a smooth interior, wide plug doors for easy loading, extra side stiffeners and cushioned underframe. These features help keep product dry and in good condition.

The stiffeners between side posts and extra-strong connection at the side sills are designed to withstand the stresses of loading and unloading of heavy paper rolls, large parts, and other heavy products. The interior walls are very smooth with recessed lading strap anchors.

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

  • Size / capacity
  • Door system
  • Brake system
  • Draft system
  • Exterior finish

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.
