FreightCar America’s offering for intermodal railcars include single unit standalone, 2-, 3-, and 5-unit articulated configurations.

Our Intermodal Well Cars are available as a five-unit 40′ model; and a three-unit 53′ model; each provide an optimized balance of payload, light weight, and enhanced safety features, all at a competitive price. The 53′ model is a three-unit double stack container car of welded and mechanically fastened construction. This innovative design offers a carrying capacity of 120,000 pounds per unit and will haul combinations of 20’, 40’, 48’ or 53’ containers. Utilizing our comprehensive design analysis process this Well Car is a structurally optimized, fatigue-resistant design, offering patent pending safety enhancements that include single-level walkways and side-mounted hand brake.

Our Articulated Bulk Container (ABC) Flat Cars have a spine-type articulated, two-unit design, allowing for tighter turning radius, that offers high-strength and high-capacity at a lighter weight of 70,000 pounds.

These features of our Intermodal style of railcars can be configured to meet your specific requirements or preferences:

  • Size / capacity
  • 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.
