50’6” and 60’9” high-capacity boxcars are the larger Plate F, 286,000lbs GRL version of the 70T standard boxcar. The high-cube, high-capacity car is equipped with a nailable steel floor to help secure dunnage and two 8′ centered plug doors on each side (60’9” car) or a 12′ centered plug door on each side (50’6” car), which allows for a watertight seal where necessary. The 60′ car provides additional cubic feet of loading space for lighter loads, as compared to a 50′ car. Similar to the 70T standard, this car has the ability to move a variety of bulk commodities and can be configured with various interior loading devices such as belt-rails or moveable bulkheads to secure loads.
