For a glimpse at what the rail-car market looked like at year-end 2018, we offer five data-filled charts (see below) from the Association of American Railroads: Selected Car Fleet Data, Freight Cars Installed by Class Is and Others, How the North American Freight Car Fleet Has Changed, and North American Freight Cars by Type and Age. There's also a chart that features Class I locomotive data.
Two charts are based primarily on information gleaned from the April 2019 edition of The Official Railway Equipment Register: Railroad Car Owners and Private Car Owners. Rail-car equipment is listed by AAR reporting mark, except where indicated (see the Private Car Owners chart).
