A little bit about the Past Railroad itself.

 

RailBoxCompany (reporting marks ABOXRBOXTBOXFBOX), founded in 1974, was created to address a boxcarshortage in the United Statesin the 1970s.[1]It was a subsidiary of the Chicago-based TrailerTrain.[1]

The concept behind RailBox, as evidenced by the slogan, "Next Load, Any Road!" was, because RailBox was joint-owned by many of the railroads as a privately-owned cooperative, these boxcars were not subject to load/empty rules. RailBox cars could be assigned for service on any railroad in Canada, Mexico and the United States on lines where an AAR Plate-C loading gaugeis permitted. RailBox purchased boxcars from many Manufacturers, including American Car and Foundry (ACF), Food Machinery & Chemicals (FMC), and Pullman-Standard (P-S).
