ABC cars from FreightCar America Inc. are two-platform rail cars that share a common truck assembly with an articulated connector between the units. The ABC car's lightweight, skeleton design carries 20-foot solid waste containers, each weighing up to 59,000 pounds. The 90-foot long cars can alternatively carry two standard 40-foot ISO containers. When deployed for maximum payload service, containers can be double-stacked on each end of the car and loaded single level at the two intermediate positions nearest the articulated truck. This six-container load fills a maximum capacity of 354,000 pounds.
