Gondolas: Mill Gondola Cars (Millgon)

FreightCar America’s mill gondola designs are engineered to our customers’ specific heavy-haul requirements. Versatile and strong, our mill gondolas are available in lengths from 52′ 6″ to 66′ and with side heights up to 8′ and capacity up to 6400 cu.-ft. FreightCar America mill gondola cars offer superior structural elements including our patented one-piece, cold-rolled center sill, fabricated or integrated cast draft sills, pinned corner connections and a choice of welded or riveted sides. Available options include steel covers and customized interior racks depending on shipper requirements, and our car bodies can be all steel or a combination of steel and stainless. They can be created from virtually any standard draft gear donor car.

With their durable, high-strength construction and flexible design, FreightCar America’s mill gondola products offer reliable and productive heavy-haul transportation options tailored to our customers’ needs.

These features of our Millgons 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.
