History: This 5,200 cubic feet capacity covered hopper car has a curve sided design with two compartments and gravity outlet gates specifically designed for grain service. This car features the robust strength provided by a through center sill and can be furnished lined. This covered hopper comes equipped with a continuous trough hatch and gravity outlet gates. Various roof hatch configurations and outlet gates are available.

Railroad/Company:
Greenbrier designs, builds and markets freight railcars in North America and Europe, we build freight railcars and rail castings in Brazil through a strategic partnership, and build and market marine barges in North America.

Recently, through our European manufacturing operations, we also began delivery of US-designed tank cars in Saudi Arabia. In October 2016, we entered into an agreement with Astra Rail Management GmbH to form a new company, Greenbrier-Astra Rail, which will create an end-to-end, Europe-based freight railcar manufacturing, engineering and repair business. We expect this combination will be completed during 2017.
