Rolling stock/freight cars have been used to handle the bulk of the shipping business for today's railroads. Cargo moving in boxcars and perishable goods in reefers, coal moving in coal hoppers/cars, oils and liquids moved with tank cars and machinery or other big loads moved with the use of flatcars were, and are longtime mainstays of railroads. In the modern era, covered hoppers loaded with grain and chemicals; auto transport cars moving autos and trucks; long flatcars carrying trailers and intermodal, well cars double-stacked with shipping containers have joined the freight-hauling fleet. In this category you’ll find the common cars mentioned above, plus more specialized freight cars such as maintenance cars, work cars, logging cars, ore cars, and specialty cars. The caboose, missing from today’s trains, along with specialty models are all part of the mix you’ll find in a G scale, O scale, HO scale, N scale, Z scale and American Flyer S scale rolling stock/freight cars.
