50' Single Sheathed Box Car



Prototype Information
In the years immediately following World War I, America’s railroads required larger capacity enclosed freight cars to haul bulky loads such as furniture, large machinery, and the increasingly popular automobile from their points of manufacture to destinations across the country. The fifty foot composite “auto” boxcar, consisting of steel framing with wood sheathing and having large door openings of at least 12 feet and 10 feet of interior height was a perfect fit for those railroads, mostly western and southern, that did not have the clearance restrictions imposed initially by the tunnels and existing trackwork of the northeast. These forerunners to the modern enclosed autorack were frequently reconfigured throughout their lifetimes, and could be found with a mixed variety of features, such as Evans autoloader racks, different side door styles, optional “drive in” end doors, roof designs and overall height to enable the rapid loading and unloading of not only automobiles, but whatever commodity the railroad required.
