FreightCar America’s VersaCoil™ line of coil gondola cars is superior for shipping finished steel coils. Our 10 transverse-trough or longitudinal configured VersaCoil gondola adds to our expanded line of steel coil car designs tailored to meet customer requirements. VersaCoil carries 30′ to 72′ coils in six troughs and 30′ to 48′ coils in four troughs which can be protected with lightweight insulated steel or aluminum covers that are easily handled during loading and unloading.

Available with 5, 7, 9, or 10 transverse troughs or in longitudinal configuration, VersaCoil gondolas enhance efficiency and productivity for shipping coils of all sizes and weights.

Advantages of our design include:

Versatility – wide variety of coil sizes, and can haul hot or cold coils
Best Utilization – more than one coil per trough, heavier payloads
No Edge Damage – coils protected from longitudinal train forces
Easy to Load – no bulkheads to repair, position or pin

These features of our VersaCoil™ 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.
