Flatcar (oversized freight)
We transport a broad range of oversized or "dimensional" freight, including generators, transformers, boilers, structural steel, steel plates, aviation components, construction equipment, rolling machinery and large vehicles. The shipment of oversized freight requires careful planning and a "clearance" is issued over a route the freight can safely clear.
We use bulkhead flatcars and chain tie-down flatcars to carry steel products (drilling pipe, plate, beams) as well as military and machinery loads. Chain tie-down flatcars can be 60 feet, 68 feet, or 89 feet in length. The flatcars depicted hauling a wind blade here are 89 feet long.
