Con-Cor's "N" Scale 50 FT Rib-Side Union Pacific Boxcar
Boxcars can carry most kinds of freight. Originally they were hand-loaded, but in more recent years mechanical assistance such as forklifts are being used to load and empty them faster.
In recent times the increased use of waterborne cargo transport to container shipping (effectively a boxcar without the wheels and chassis) designed to be amenable to intermodal freight transport, has limited the boxcar's popularity. The automotive parts business, however, has always been a big user of the boxcar. This "N" Scale model accurately recreates the Union Pacific mainstay.
