Before the advent of specialty car types (such as covered hoppers and auto racks), nearly every type of product was shipped in a box car. 50’ Box Cars gained popularity in the late 1930s as they offered additional space for bulkier freight vs. the then-common 40’ car. Single door versions would become most common, although many double door cars would be constructed to assist with the handling of bulkier freight such as automobiles, furniture and lumber. In fact, many railroads classified double door box cars as “automobile cars” or “furniture cars” in deference to their specialized service. Double door box cars typically had reinforced flooring to handle the weight of heavier loads and the equipment used during the loading and unloading process.
