Description

Bx-166 boxcar, a 62’ double-door insulated boxcar.

Road Number: 780839

Prototype Specifications

The Bx-166 Boxcar has been a hallmark in the logistics of beer distribution all throughout North America, and particularly in its service to breweries in the western United States. The Bx-166 is unique for its double- door configuration, distinguishing it from its fellow beer-hauling cousins. The defining characteristic on these cars, instantly separating them from the pack, are the diagonal braces on either side of the doors. 

Custom-built by the ATSF in 1974, a total of 300 Bx-166 boxcars were built at the Santa Fe’s car shops in Topeka, KS. Measuring 61’ 6” in length (66’ ½” over strikers), this icon of beer transportation has proven invaluable to the Santa Fe and, later, BNSF. Boasting two 8’ insulated doors on each side, the Bx-166 provides a total of 16’ door opening width for crews to load and unload pallets and kegs of beer.
