Designed to efficiently move medium-density commodities, these railcars typically have three to four pockets and haul grain, sugar, fertilizer, potash, soda ash, bentonite, lime, bone meal, and many other dry bulk commodities. They are sometimes lined as coating requirements vary by commodity. The cars can be equipped with different hatch arrangements (trough, circular, or a combination) and a variety of gate types depending on your needs.
