Coal Gondola


Aluminum coal gondolas are high-capacity, open-top railcars that are specifically designed to maximize coal loading. These railcars have solid bottoms and can only be used when rotary dumping is available. Their design makes them the leader in coal carrying capabilities, as these railcars can carry up to 122 tons of coal.
