Prototype History

In 1982 Fruit Growers Express, or FGE (owned by CSX) needed to repair and upgrade their 20 year old existing fleet of RBL boxcars (insulated plug door cars with moveable load dividers). About 2,500 of these RBL cars were supposed to be retrofitted with a modified load divider system as well as installing Chemply fiberglass resistant lining to the sidewalls and upgrading the cushioned underframe and the plug door system.
