FreightCar America’s Ore Car is the industry’s leading Taconite ore car.

This workhorse features our patented one-piece, cold-rolled center sill for years of reliable service. Our ore cars are offered with both transverse and longitudinal door systems, and in a gondola configuration as well. Car bodies can be all steel, or a combination of steel and stainless, and come in several sizes and capacities. Ore cars can be created from virtually any standard draft gear donor car.

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

  • Size / capacity
  • Stainless option
  • Hybrid option
  • Door system
  • Brake system
  • Draft system
  • Exterior finish
  • Gondola & open top design
  • Modification available from coal or small cube car or similar
  • Covered option available

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.
