Boxcars & Freight Cars of North America
This site is intended to provide a resource for railroad freight car images.
There are over 4,000 freight cars documented on this site.

Images are organized alphabetically by the reporting marks.  For example, Cotton Belt cars are under SSW.  SSW is the reporting mark that is found on these cars which were owned by the Saint Louis and Southwestern Rail Road aka Cotton Belt.

NOTE: When ordering copies the relative quality of the original can be inferred from the image size.  A size of less then 100 kilobytes is probably little better than the image on this site.  An image size of greater then 1000 kilobytes will contain a great deal of detail and the original will be satisfactory.  Refunds will be sent for image copies that are unacceptable.
