Boxcars

GATX boxcars are available in 50-, 60-, and 86-foot lengths, with loading capacities ranging from 70 to 105 tons and gross rail capacities of 220,000 to 286,000 lb.

    Our boxcars are designed to handle commodities
    such as paper products, lumber and forest goods,
    canned goods and food products. GATX boxcars
    offer plug or sliding, single or double doors with
    cushioned or non-cushioned underframes and
    insulated or non-insulated interiors. Additionally,
    we can outfit these railcars with various interior
loading mechanisms to secure loads and special linings for food-grade products.

 

 To select the right railcar for your needs, answer these questions:

  • Is the commodity being stacked, slip-sheeted or loaded on pallets?
  • Does the cargo require cushioned or rigid draft gear?
  • What kind of load dividers, tie-downs or other mechanisms to secure cargo are required?
  • Are there any floor requirements for the cargo or to ease loading?
  • Do you require a specific door configuration?
