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.

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.
