Intricately Detailed, Durable ABS Body. (2) Operating Die-Cast Metal Couplers.While usually referred to as an insulated boxcar, the prototype for this car, according to the Association of American Railroads (AAR), is technically a bunkerless refrigerator car, class RBL. They have hardwood floors and at least 3 of insulation in their sides, ends and roofs. Produce is a common cargo. The cars' length and wide 16' door openings have also made them popular with plywood and lumber shippers. In contrast with typical sliding doors, the plug doors on these cars are pulled into the door opening when the door is latched. This produces a nearly watertight and airtight seal, protecting the load and helping to keep a more constant inside temperature. A cushioned underframe also helps protect the load from shock, hence the "DF" (for "damage free") logo found on some of these cars. Although the last of these cars are nearing the end of their allowable 40-year service life, they can still be found in U.
