With an interior height of about 13 feet — 2 feet more than a standard box car — this car is known as a “hi-roof” or “high cube” car for its high cubic capacity. White end panels make railroad crews aware of its extra height, which prevents it from traveling in some areas.

This 40’ 65-ton car is designed specifically for the modern printing industry, which uses large rolls of paper too big for standard box cars. Side-to-floor joints and doorframes are reinforced to accommodate the heavy weight of paper rolls. Longer 60’ versions of this design are widely used for transporting parts for car manufacturing.

High quality, traditionally sized RailKing Freight Cars provide detailed bodies and colorful paint schemes for the O Gauge railroader. MTH makes an enormous variety of RailKing Freight Cars, including many different car types and roadnames. No matter what era or part of the country you are modeling, RailKing is sure to have something for you.
