The Types Of Rail Cars We Sell and Lease
Boxcars carry a wide variety of freight and are fully enclosed. Doors can be on the side, ends, or top. Because they are enclosed, boxcars protect the freight inside from the weather during transport. These rectangular boxes carry a wide variety of freight, usually crated or palletized goods.
Refrigerated Boxcars are for perishable freight because they are temperature controlled. Fresh produce, frozen foods, meat, poultry, seafood, and dairy products are usually transported in refrigerated boxcars.
A common variant of the boxcar is the refrigerated boxcar, which utilizes its enclosure to maintain temperature control for goods.
These also differ from insulated or ventilated boxcars in that they are not only temperature controlled, but they are fitted with their own apparatuses for cooling.
Similar to flat cars, center beams are railcars meant to carry building equipment and supplies in bundles.
They are flat-bottomed, and a longitudinal I-beam runs down the center. This beam not only adds strength to the car, but it helps protect cargo from damage during transport.
Open-top hoppers are similar to covered hoppers with the difference being that open-top hoppers do not have covers, so they are better suited to freight that can be exposed to the elements.

Coil cars are round-topped railcars meant for the transportation of coils, usually sheet metals like steel. They come in a variety of lengths, tonnage, and capacities for specialized commodities. They keep cargo secure and can be easily customized.
Flatcars are open-topped railcars primarily used to transport industrial parts like pipes, rails, or steel machinery. You may have also seen them carrying stacks of lumber or large vehicles like tractors or tanks. As you can guess, these cars are low to the ground and completely flat..
Like flat cars, gondolas are open-topped railcars. However, gondolas have low side walls mean to keep loose materials from falling out. Essentially, they are flat cars with sides.
Gondolas typically carry heavy bulk cargo like sand, iron ore, scrap metal, or copper. Because of their open-topped design, gondolas are usually filled with items that aren’t at risk of being damaged by elements like wind or rain.

Can a Civilian Own a Train?
In the United States, it is perfectly legal for a civilian to purchase and operate a train. This may surprise some, as trains are often associated with large corporations or the government. However, no law restricts ownership of trains to only these entities. Several private companies offer passenger and freight services via their own private rail lines. And while owning your own personal train may be a bit out of reach for most people, it is possible if you have the resources and the interest.
