Frequently Asked Questions
Freight cars vary in shape and size, but tend to fall in four main categories:
- Open-top cars include gondola and hopper rail cars.
- Boxcars are enclosed vehicles with sliding side doors.
- Flat rail cars have an open, flat deck for long and bulky commodities
- Covered hoppers, used for agricultural, plastics, and other dry commodities
We can provide tailored freight car solutions of all types, including MOW gondolas, heavy duty rail cars, hopper car parts for sale, and more.
MOW or Maintenance of Way rail cars tend to look just like regular freight cars to the untrained eye. However, MOW cars are essential for keeping the entire railroad running. This is because Maintenance of Way trains, as their name suggests, are used to maintain the track and railroad right of way.
At our company, we offer high-quality MOW gondolas for sale. Our in-house team will take into account any special requests and wishes you may have before starting the engineering process. It is our goal to provide you with a high-quality custom solution for all your railroad maintenance needs.
A gondola is an open-top freight car designed to transport loose bulk materials, such as debris, garbage, scrap metal, wood chips, and other materials. However, thanks to the low side walls gondolas are known for, they can also be used to carry high-density cargo (steel coils or beams) and bulky commodities.
