History: The 50' boxcar had largely replaced its 40 foot predecessor by the 1960s. With the advent of the Per Diem rules, production of 50 foot steel boxcars by all tyhe major manufacturers really took off. ACF was no exception. This model was b uilt by ACF (American Car and Foundry) in the late 1960's and early 1970's. It was delivered in both smooth side and rib side versions. This boxcar features a single sliding door and no roof-walk. Conrail took possession of about 1,000 of these cars from the Penn Central that were built and delivered in 1971. The Illinois Central took delivery of 200 50' ACF boxcars in April of 1967. The cars are easily identifiable with their indented panel area to the right of the 10' door

Railroad/Company:
ACF Industries LLC originally known as The American Car and Foundry Company and was formed in 1899. In 1955 ACF Industries, Incorporated became the new name for The American Car and Foundry. Over the years railcar manufacturing and leasing were the major forces in ACF's economic growth and stability. ACF has weathered many changes and is still committed to the manufacture of new railcar and railcar parts and sub-assemblies. ACF Industries LLC became a successor to ACF Industries, Incorporated on May 1, 2003.

ACF Industries LLC is a leader in the manufacture and fabrication of specialty railcar parts and miscellaneous steel products. While the Company's primary purpose is to compliment the new car and repair car market, it also provides manufacturing support to other manufacturers of steel products.
