FMC 5327 12’-0 Plug Door Boxcar


[powr-image-slider label="FMC5327"]

We are pleased to share the FMC 5327 boxcar with 12’-0 plug doors!


In 1979, FMC Corporation built 10’-6 and 12’-0 plug door versions of its 5327 exterior post boxcar. Of the two versions, the 12’-0 plug door is the most distinctive. The wide plug door on a 50’ exterior post car was very modern for this era, and the distinctive paint schemes of the East Camden & Highland, Minnesota Dakota & Western, and New Orleans Public Belt were equally fresh. In 1979, this car was cool as your gold Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.
