History: The main product of a blast furnace is molten crude iron. It is transported in torpedo ladle cars for additional processing in a steel plant. The cars can be carried on 18-axles with an authorized total weight of 360 metric tons. The interior of the container is bricked up to be fireproof in order that the 1,350° Celsius / 2,462° Fahrenheit hot load does not cool down on the one hand and to prevent the container from melting. Three to four of these cars often run in a train. Two-axle empty freight cars are coupled between them to keep from exceeding the permissible load on railroad bridges.

Railroad/Company: This set of items is comprised of more than one name. Please look at the component items for details on the specific roadnames and/or manufacturers.
