WPRM FRRS Logo A boxcar is defined as a fully enclosed, rectangular freight car for carrying items requiring protection from the weather.  Most boxcars range in size from 40 feet up to 89 feet, however, the most common size in the steam era was 40 feet and 50 feet after the coming of the diesel.

The Western Pacific Railroad Museum features a very large and diverse collection of boxcars that would be found on the average WP freight train.

While boxcars were the most prominent type of freight car seen until recently, intermodal transport has taken over as the most popular.
