Description: Freight Cars: Lettering and Marking is a helpful guide to the lettering and marking of freight cars as established by AAR rules. A must for every railroader needing to read and interpret markings and lettering on freight cars and tank cars.

Additional Information: This book outlines the current standards and practices in effect with respect to the lettering and marking of interchange freight cars. These standards specify the following:

  • What information is to be shown
  • The format for displaying that information
  • Where the information is to be displayed
  • The size of the letters and numerals to be used
  • What optional information may be included, and the suggested sizes and locations for that information

    The markings on freight cars have three principal purposes:

  • To provide a uniform marking system for reporting the car on waybills, consists, and for billing purposes.
  • To give specific information about the physical characteristics of the car dimensional data, capacity, weight, and mechanical designations.
  • To display the various dates that are important to assure compliance with established maintenance requirements for the car and its critical components.

    Freight Cars: Lettering and Marking presents over 40 illustrations and photographs of detailed lettering and markings on freight cars, doors, tank cars, boxcars, and much more. Softcover.
